Shipping Agent

We are proud to have been the local shipping agent for HMAS Melville, an Australian Navy vessel here in the port of Rabaul, East New Britain, Papua New Guinea during the month of September 2019.

Being a shipping agent we liaise with the following to assist with Port in and Port out:

  • PNG Port Authorities
  • PNG Customs Authority
  • PNG Immigration Department
  • National Agriculture Quarantine and Inspection Authority
  • Health  Quarantine

In East New Britain the main shipping port is located in Rabaul’s Simpson Harbor. However, super yachts can also anchor in the town of Kokopo with permission from the PNG Customs authority.

Kokopo, the new township’s waterfront has been the preferred anchorage port for a number of yachts in recent times due to its proximity to the airport. Most government services and supermarkets have moved to Kokopo making it more convenient for clearance, re-provisioning and other logistics.

The Rabaul port pilot is not required in Kokopo; however customs, quarantine and immigration authorities’ regulations are still applicable. Advance permission is required from customs to anchor at uncertified ports.
