Lorengau is a township situated in Manus Province on Manus Island, also known as the Admiralty Islands, in Papua New Guinea. It serves as the major town on Manus Island and has a population of approximately 6,000 people.

Located on the edge of Seeadler Harbour, Lorengau benefits from its proximity to the port of Longreau, one of the two ports on the island. The other port, Lombrum, serves as a significant strategic naval base for the defense forces of the United States, Australia, and Papua New Guinea. Additionally, the naval base facilitates commercial container vessels from Australia.

Manus Island offers regular domestic air services and boasts various tourist activities, including scuba diving, snorkeling, and traditional dance performances. The island also holds remnants of World War II, such as relics and shipwrecks in the surrounding waters. However, in the early 21st century, Manus became infamous as the site of one of Australia’s contentious Pacific Island detention centers used for processing offshore-bound asylum seekers.


In early 2017, the Manus Regional Processing Centre was decommissioned, and numerous refugees and asylum seekers were forcibly transferred to three new centers near Lorengau. These new centers were West Lorengau Haus, Hillside Haus, and East Lorengau Refugee Transit Centre. At the time, the construction of these centers was incomplete, leaving 60 men without suitable accommodation. While the detainees were allowed limited movement during the day, they were prohibited from leaving Manus Island.

Prohibited and Restricted Items:

Please note that Papua New Guinea is renowned for its commitment to environmental preservation, and strict border control measures are in place. Heavy fines and potential imprisonment penalties apply for non-compliance, and goods may be returned to the origin port. The following items are strictly prohibited and cannot be imported into Papua New Guinea:

Objectionable material, including explicit content on videotapes, films, records, CD-ROMs, and publications. Weapons such as flick knives, butterfly knives, swordsticks, and knuckle-dusters. Any item that disguises a weapon as something else. Equipment intended for the use of cannabis or methamphetamine. Any item planned for use in criminal activities.
For the following commodities, check whether a permit is required:

Ivory in any form, including jewelry and carvings. Tortoise or sea turtle shell jewelry and ornaments. Meat or food derived from whales, dolphins, rare cranes, pheasants, sea turtles, and other restricted animals. Medicines containing musk or derivatives from rhinoceros, tiger, ground horn, or bone. Carvings or products made from whalebone or bone of other marine mammals. Cat skins. Trophies made from sea turtles, big cats, rare reptiles, cranes, pheasants, bears, antelope, and deer. Live species, including pet eagles, hawks, owls, and parrots, certain cacti, orchids, cycads, cyclamens, and carnivorous plants. Importing certain medicines, especially controlled drugs, may be restricted. Pseudoephedrine-containing medications are generally not allowed. Non-compliance with these regulations can result in substantial fines and possible imprisonment.

If you are returning to Papua New Guinea or immigrating after spending 21 months or more overseas, you may be eligible for concessions on vehicles, boats, and motorcycles that accompany you or are transported separately.

Bringing Motor Vehicles into Papua New Guinea:

There is a growing trend of people purchasing cars online from overseas and importing them into Papua New Guinea. While the initial purchase price of these vehicles may seem lower than local prices, significant costs are associated with importing and registering them. Besides freight and insurance costs, import duties ranging from 40% to 110% of the vehicle’s import value (depending on its size) are applicable. Additionally, a 10% Import GST is collected upon import. Other fees, such as broker fees, quarantine clearance fees, port handling fees, car safety inspection fees, and registration fees, can easily double the vehicle’s original purchase price.

Before purchasing and importing a vehicle from overseas, it is crucial to be aware of all associated costs. Vehicles left at a customs wharf for over 30 days are forfeited to the State of Papua New Guinea and can be sold or auctioned to recover duty, GST, handling, and storage fees.

To support your claim, you will need to provide documentation such as purchase and delivery receipts, registration and insurance papers, and evidence of when the vehicle, boat, or plane was surrendered for shipping.

If you do not qualify for concessions, you will be required to pay duty and GST on the imported vehicle.
