Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa, 20/07/2017
The tourism initiative of Tonga becoming a wedding destiny is yet to be legalize.
Under the same initiative registered personnel who are not Church Ministers are allowed to conduct wedding ceremonies.
This is a mere plan with nothing in place to enforce it.
Information from the Ministry of Justice confirmed they’ve put together the overall results of public consultations on this issue to be submitted to Cabinet.
This comes after Rev. Simote Vea raised concern over the issue during the annual consultation in Navutoka with members of parliament.
Under the same initiative foreigners and tourists who wish to marry in Tonga can stay in the Kingdom for only two weeks instead of 6 months as stipulated by the law.
