Hi,

If this salary is higher than your net salary of Doha then you should definitely take this job. This is a very calm life when compared to Doha. Your total expenses per month will vary depending upon your lifestyle. Here savings will be more as there is a limited scope for expense.

Port Moresby is mostly safe. People wont annoy you anywhere here. On security part, Port Moresby is ok.

Hi,

PNG exchange rate is better than Dhoa, but just confirm is this net salary and fortnight salary?
Doha life style is different from Port Moresby, but these will adjustable.

In the Gulf countries you may go around any time any where with your ID card, but here careful after dark with a proper transport, also this will vary upto the person who is taking the social life security like this country..

Everything is safe and secure how the way dealing with the day to day in their life PNG.

Thanks,
