This notice serves to advise our valued clients, service providers, stakeholders and the general public that our front counters at the IPA Haus, Konedobu, Port Moresby will be re-opened on Monday 21st June 2021 since its closure on April 16th 2021 following the spike in COVID-19 cases in Port Moresby.   

We sincerely appreciate and thank you all for your understanding and cooperation during our lock down period.

On a positive note, we are happy to advise that we have experienced an increase in the usual number of daily users of the online registry services. This is the ultimate purpose of creating an online registry service and we hope that in the near future we will be able to fully phase off the manual lodgments and roll out a paperless registry service, especially in Port Moresby.
