Matangi Tonga reports the UAE's government has announced the new travel facility for their nationals entering Tonga, after a Memorandum of Understanding was signed by both countries this week in Abu Dhabi.

The MoU was reportedly signed by the UAE's Assistant Minister of Foreign Affairs and the Special Envoy of the King of Tonga to the UAE, 'Akau'ola.

There has been no announcement about the new visa waiver from Tonga's government.

UAE has signed similar visa waivers with Fiji and New Zealand.
