Limit on Tongan Kava permitted per passenger on board aircraft

Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa, 15/01/2019

The CEO of Agriculture is urging the passengers from Tonga travelling to Australia and the US transiting via Fiji to pack their Tongan kava in their check-in baggage NOT in their carry-on bags.

Dr. Viliami Manu says Fiji is implementing an international policy for prohibiting powder items that exceeds 350 grams per passenger including Tongan kava.

Manu says many passengers traveling via Fiji have been disappointed as the Tongan kava they had packed was destroyed in Fiji, due to exceeding the permitted amount.

International Policies include the restricted number of liquid items allowed per passenger.
