I'll be taking my first trip to Papua New Guinea soon.
If anyone can answer my questions below or give some other tips it would be very welcome.
I'm travelling all on Qantas MEL-CBR, CBR-BNE-TSV, TSV-CNS-POM with stopovers in Canberra and Townsville (my first time ever there) and back POM-CNS-SYD-MEL. In PNG, I'll stay in POM for 2 nights and travel to Tufi Resort for 5 nights.
Q1. Qantas international at Cairns
I know the international Qantas Club is closed, but Jetstar give Starclass passengers access to the Reef Lounge. Does Qantas now do the same for gold/platinum/QC passengers?
Q2. Visa on arrival at POM
Costs PGK100.00. Is it possible to pay in AUD or credit card? Are there ATMs or a bank before the VOA process? Do you need a passport photo for the VOA?
Q3. ATMs at POM airport
Are there any/many? Is it risky to arrive without PGK? Are there banks in case the ATMs don't work?
Q4. Port Moresby
Is it really that dangerous? I'm at the Holiday Inn for 2 nights (on points stays that I needed to align my international and PNG domestic flights), but I plan to at least see the place.
Thanks again for any advice or tips!
