150 Tongans will travel to Australia tomorrow

Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa, 28/10/2020

The preparation process and training for the 150 Tongans that will travel to Brisbane Australia tomorrow has been completed.

CEO of Internal Affairs Dr Fotu Fisi’iahi says, as Australia wants more seasonal workers from Tonga, they’ve selected the first team to leave tomorrow and they will begin training another team to depart next month.

Since the border closure in March, many of the seasonal workers in Australia are not able to return home and most of the Tongans on the program are not able to travel to Australia.

Tomorrows flight will return some of those who are stranded in Brisbane only and CEO says most of the Tongans stranded there have returned to work.
