    Hello and welcome!

    Getting married can be a joyous occasion, but all the paperwork of marrying abroad can take some of the fun out of it. We would like to invite people who have been married in Papua New Guinea to share their advice.

    What do you wish you had known? What is the procedure to get married in Papua New Guinea? How much does it cost? Do you need a special visa, permit, or documentation? How far in advance do you need to plan? How expensive is it?

    Is the process the same for locals as it is for expats? What about a mixed partnership (between a foreigner and a native)? Do you need to send documentation back to your country?

    What customs should you expect? Is there a certain style of dress you need to wear? What about for guests? What kind of gift-giving is expected?

    Also share your questions if you are preparing to marry abroad or your experiences if you have attended a wedding in Papua New Guinea.

    Congratulations to all of our engaged couples or recently married and thanks for sharing your stories.
