Be Careful on Visa for Airports jn Australia

Today is January 6, 2019 I am at the Denpasar International airport. I arrived here at 20.00 or eight at night and right now I am writing this entry at 23.06

Three hoars gone since I arrived here.

I want supposed to check in at 08.00pm and my plane has already departed for Brisbane at 22.10.

I was refused to check in because the Malindo Air from Denpasar to Brisbane is not issuing my boarding pass.

The counter told me I need to entery visa number for Australia in order to my boarding pass to be printed.

I stepped back,  asked the person who bought my ticket. I got two replies. The first one is that it is OK if it is less than 8 hours layover in Australia.

The second answer was a screenshot sent to me saying "no visa required" in the ticketing office website

Of course both did not help.

I asked my colleague to ask the ticketing office but no luck

My advice for other travellers

Especially those holding Asian and African passports should know that entering into Australia is not easy. We need to avoid any flights transit in Australia and use transfer in Asia instead.

Secondly we need to make sure when traveling via the USA to r Australia that we need to book and buy tickets when they connecting flight is the same airline. If not then you need to check out and if you need to check out then you will need visa..

those who are traveling to Melaneaia my advice is to choose the Asia routes not Australia ones. To go to Vanuatu I suggest you to use Fiji Airlines. To go to PNG it is cheaper and safer to use Phillipines Airlines. Just avoid Australia totally.

Cost Of Air Travel In PNG A Concern

Commentary by Bryan Kramer, Hon Member for Madang Open 

Today I boarded a flight from Lae to Madang on PNG Air. It was the first time I've traveled on the airline, while I was impressed with the service what put me off was the cost of the ticket - K600.

The distance between Madang and Lae is just 200 km yet the price of a ticket is equal to flying on a special from Port Moresby to Brisbane, another country.

So foreign nationals and Politicians enjoy flying abroad on cheaper flights than everyday PNGeans in our own country.

When I inspected the ticket I noted the break up of cost, PNG Air fees being K272 and Government Tax & Charges component making up the balance of K321.

This is certainly ridiculous, where the Government charges exceeds the cost of the actual service.

I've been informed EDA Ranu has recently increase the water tariffs in NCD by 600%, Motor Vehicle Registration has also increased by some 40%.

It appears the O'Neill Government now broke from running down the country and misusing Billions in public funds is now trying to pass the cost onto the people while Members of Parliament continue to be overpaid, under taxed and yet corrupt MPs still feel the need to steal millions in public funds.

As a Member of Opposition and Shadow Minister for State Owned Enterprises I intend to put an end to it this madness.

While I maintain the war on the newspaper companies I will start carrying out inquires to establish whether these exorbitant price increases are even legal and what options are available to the public to bring a class action against it.
