Angry PNG Merri 

Any one experience difficulties sponsoring their friends or family to visit three months visa to Ausralia. I certainly did. It costing me and family the cost of seeing the doctors @ K400 per person for three of them. Again for xray anther lot of visit to doctor for the one affected wth TB extra cost of @ K400.00 The visa for three two adult and a child @ K300.00 per person. The process of going from vllage to Port Moresby is so frustrating. The total cost K5,000 before coming to Australia, its unbelieve. They should explain the process to people so that they can understand, luck of communcation between Australian Visa officers to people and how long it will take to achieve all the things before purchasing ticket etc etc.

If anyone has same issues or any other comments please share your information for those who mght want to travel in future.

Cheers

Well this is normal proceedure. You mentioned a traveller with TB well they need to be screened so that they dont bring/spread the disease to Australia.

Bringing someone from the village is your choice and therefore your cost, as with the medical checks and visa. Comparing the two currencies you have got a great deal actually although you could get cheaper airfares if you booked further in advace.

You could of saved yourself alot of frustration if you got all your information off of the Dept Immigration website and visited an Immigration Officer in Australia to guide you through the process. Also next time prepare all documentation/visa/medical etc etc, in Oz then send to Png via DHL or TNT this will save you lots of time

All this strongly suggests to me that instead of us continuing to pamuk ourselves to Australia, often working there and paying our tax monies to the Australian government, its time to let the Aussie government know loud and clear that if they treat us with contempt, we don't need them, will back our backs and go back home to PNG.

What do you folks say, is it a plan?

yeah look the problem really is that Hanubada woman working at the front office in the High Comm, her name is Kila, she favours the hanubadas, and plays games with others from elswhere in PNG, she says get some document, then you come back to her with that document, and then she sends you off to get another document, she should just tell people what they need from the start, it takes so much longer if you are not a hanubada to get a visitor visa

everybody should make a complaint about that Kila woman working in the High comm

Oh; small brain sequence. They get angry when you ask them if there are more info documents required.

Sponsor has to provide;
1. Letter of invitation that you are solely responsible for kaikai, busfare and ples blo slip olsem.
2. Australian Bank Statement (latest) or latest PNG Balance (positive).
3. Properly filled form (you should fill them if they are village people).
4. If a the applicants had TB, get to TB clinic at PMGH or any hospital and re screen with Xray. If all is clear, do not even mention that family had TB.

It should take short time minus Kila from Hanuabada.
