I am married to a Tongan and living in Tonga since I came here in 1997. Like every place it has advantages and disadvantages. But the fact that I am still here tells you that for me and my family the advantages are far bigger than the disadvantages.
Tonga will be easy for immigration (6 months no problems), after that you need a resident visa, which should not be a problem either.
Most people do not have the courage or possibility to do a step like that. But you know its only a 30 hours flight back to Germany if things do not work out for you. While coming here, I do not suggest to engage in any business activities as you only will loose money for sure and go frustrated back like many others.
No, come here and take time to learn from the people, learn the custom and the rules. Do not invest anything for 6 months.
I love this place, the people are great, the weather can not be better. If you wanna know more feel free to write to me or give me a phonecall.

21I know ou can't do that in Solomon Islands, but you can stay up to 3 months on a tourist Visa. However, you can't upgrade it to resident unless you leave the country.

My husband & I currently live in Sedona, Arizona, U.S. & have been longing our entire lives to live in a foreign land. We are considering a visit to Tonga this coming December/January to see if this could be our future home. What island do you recommend for living? We appreciate your help & great websites too. Thanks! Janice
