The Tonga High Commission in Canberra must request approval from Tonga Immigration before an Entry visa is granted. The Entry Visa will be issued in a format of a letter and will be e-mailed to the traveller in order to be presented to Immigration upon arrival. No stamp or label is placed in the passport.
The Visa Officer may request a personal interview with the local sponsor/counterpart - this will be determined once the application has been submitted and reviewed.
Tonga tourist visa is not required for citizens of New Zealand for a stay up to 31 days.
Start with "What visa type do I need?" question right above the tabs on the left and review corresponding requirements. If you have any doubts, please contact our customer service.
Roger that, what's next?
Check with your airline in case you have connecting flights overseas as part of your journey to Tonga. It may be the case that countries you pass through en route to your destination may require a separate transit visa. Please refer to visa requirements of the specific country.
