Sorry, but that salary won't even cover the rental of very basic unit anywhere in Port Moresby worth staying in. The CoL here is absurdly expensive. A decent apartment will cost you anywhere from K2500-K5000 a week ($1200-4800) and that's before adding vehicle, food, electricity, phone, internet or other costs. Internet alone is about $80-100 per Gigabyte.

Hi cbhadkar,

AU$4400 per month tax free works out to be about K11,000 (at an exchange rate of 0.4). If your accommodation/utility/car/fuel is paid on top of this then this is more than sufficient for a very descent living in PNG.

To give you some ideas. A full tank of diesel on a double cab Toyota Hilux costs around K150 (~AU$60). A large pizza costs around K50 (~AU$20). A full banquet for 6 people plus alcohol/drinks at Daikoku Japanese teppan restaurant (where the chef cooks on a hotplate in front of you) costs around K800 (~AU$320).

If you want premium products such as Australian Just Juice then you do end up paying roughly three times more because they are imported. My daughter refuses to drink the local brand Orchy as it isn't 100% natural.

Thanks!! I am already in Port Moresby since last one month. Everything is provided by employer (House, Vehicle, Fuel, Phone, Internet,etc). My expense is towards food only. It is quite alright and i can save decent money here.
Thanks for the replies!!
