Philippine nationals are required to obtain visas before traveling to Tonga, for whatever purpose. Aside from the valid visa, they are also required to present their Philippine passports with remaining validity of at least 6 months beyond the date of departure from Tonga, onward or return tickets, and evidence of sufficient funds for their stay in the territory in order to be allowed to enter Tonga.
The visitor’s visa issued to travelers is usually valid for 30 days. All foreigners are advised that it is illegal to take up employment, business or schooling while in Tonga on a visitor’s visa. They must also take careful note of the validity of their visa and make sure not to overstay as anyone in breach of the immigration act may be prosecuted and subject to a term of imprisonment or fine or both.
Filipinos should verify the entry and visa requirements for Tonga well in advance of their planned trip to avoid difficulties, delays or even penalties. The information provided here is subject to change without prior notice. For confirmation, please contact:
