We present, for the first time, the Non-LTE gallium equivalent widths for the most prominent gallium transitions as identified in real spectra and in (hot) mercury-manganese star. The common feature of the departure coefficients is to decrease near the stellar surface, the collision rates are dominant in many cases and the Non-LTE equivalent widths are generally smaller. In particular, the abundance difference as derived from UV and visual lines is reduced. The photoionization cross sections were computed by means of standard R-matrix formalism.
