Health and Safety

Health Regulations
There is a risk of Malaria in Papua New Guinea and it is recommended that visitors consult their local doctor or tropical disease clinic to commence anti-malarial preparations before departing for PNG. Certification or vaccination against yellow fever or cholera is required for travellers over one year of age travelling to certain areas in PNG.

Water quality is within World Health Organization standards in most towns; however, bottled water is available and in rural areas it is advisable to boil water at all times.

Safety
PNG is often safe, secure and full of friendly people, however there are certain areas where it is advisable to take safety precautions. Papua New Guinea Tourism advises that all visitors travel with care and consideration for their personal security and wellbeing.

Wherever possible, PNG Tourism recommends travelling with organised Papua New Guinea tours and making all travel arrangements prior to departure with one of our preferred partners.
