It seems the Immigration people are still trying to avoid me. Last week I made a request through email to the immigration department regarding a formal explanation to why they cannot issue my niece in New Zealand a Papua New Guinea (PNG) passport.
I filled in a form on their website www.immigration.gov.pg and was promptly answered by an officer by the name of Liza-Ann Gabina. After several email exchanges she forwarded my request to the Assistant Director Magaret Pejoi-Geita. That was almost a week ago and I am yet to receive a reply.
Yesterday, in an attempt to get some feedback, I emailed them again only to find, this morning, a message from their ‘lost mail’ account.
It seems suspicious that no NDR messages were sent to my account so I tried to verify the email addresses I used and sure enough the emails checked out. I used the online service verify-email.org. Here is a snapshot of the returned messages I received.
It seems someone within the department is avoiding my request and trying to hide behind technological bullshit. If I don’t get a response by next week, I’m going start going over their heads and I will even send a letter to the Minister responsible if need be.
