Section 23AG - Exempt Foreign Service

Customer Question
Re Section 23AG I am...

Re Section 23AG I am an Australian working in foreign service in PNG on what is considered 'Australian official development assistance'. I have met the initial 91-day requirement for tax exemption, having been here since 1 October 2014. My question is, if I was to continue working for my employer, but work in an almost FIFO arrangement between PNG and Australia where I was in PNG for 2 weeks in every 5-6 weeks, would I still be eligible for tax exemption?
