Just in case you don't have time - or confidence - in posting your
passport within Australia...a visa can be purchased at the airport in Pt
Moresby. It's a little more expensive and does delay your departure from
the airport - obviously - but it may be easier and it does mean not
risking losing your passport. (At least this option was available 2
years ago, I assume it still is)
