Timeline and information

From March 18 Papua New Guinea requires everyone traveling to the country from coronavirus affected nations to go into a 14-day quarantine. Travelers from Italy, South Korea, Iran, China, and Japan have to go into a quarantine outside Papua New Guinea.

The Prime Minister of Papua New Guinea, James Marape, told news outlets that he will introduce a 60-day ban on cruise ships and on official overseas travel by all public servants.

A special surveillance system is monitoring the movements within the country itself. It is not possible anymore to travel to Indonesia and to cross the sea borders between Bougainville and the Solomon Islands [Source].
