Communication for Papua New Guinea residents:

Papua New Guinea poliovirus outbreak

The World Health Organization has confirmed that poliovirus is circulating once more in Papua New Guinea after 18 years of being polio-free. As polio is a highly infectious disease which transmits rapidly, there is a potential for the outbreak to spread across the country, or even into neighbouring countries, unless swift action is taken.

Therefore, travellers applying for a Schengen visa, who are residing in PNG or Papua Province for 4 weeks or longer must have a documented polio vaccine ( in the form of an International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis) within 4 weeks to 12 months prior to international travel.
