The much awaited administrative process is almost complete and the PNG Immigration and Citizenship Service Authority has recently made available the relevant form for Papua New Guinean citizens seeking dual citizenship with a prescribed country.
We’re happy to provide you links to download each of these forms.
The forms we prepared and made available at the end of March 2017.
Some information you should be aware of these forms when completing:
- Approval to hold Dual Citizenship is limited to prescribed countries: Australia, Fiji, Germany, New Zealand, Samoa, United Kingdom, United States of America and Vanuatu.
- If you are currently under 18 years of age, you can lawfully hold Dual Citizenship with other country(s). You cannot seek approval from the PNG Government to hold Dual Citizenship before you are 18 years old. You must wait until you turn 18 years of age before making this application.
- If you are 18 years of age, but have not yet turned 19, you may apply for approval for an existing Dual Citizenship with a prescribed country. You may also seek approval to obtain Dual Citizenship with a prescribed country if you do not already hold that other Citizenship.
- If you are aged 19 or older at the time of the application you must not hold Citizenship with another country at the time of application. You may only seek approval to obtain Dual Citizenship with an prescribed country where you do not already hold that other Citizenship. If you were PNG Citizen and obtained Citizenship with another country without Dual Citizenship approval and kept that other Citizenship past your 19th birthday, you will have automatically lost your PNG Citizenship. In this case you are a former PNG Citizen, and will need to apply for: resumption of your PNG Citizenship, or PNG Citizenship by Naturalisation (Long Term Resident, Investor or Sportsperson), or PNG Citizenship by Descent (parent/grandparent) or PNG Citizenship by Marriage.
So here are the links to the forms:
