Employment and Business Visa / Arbeitsvisum für Tonga

Ungelesener Beitrag von mahimahi » 27 Mär 10 22:00

Seit Februar 2010 gilt eine verschärfte Einhaltung der Verordnungen zur Ausstellung von Arbeitsvisa in Tonga. Diese können nur noch von ausserhalb Tongas NEU beantragt werden (also Erstanträge, dies betrifft nicht Verlängerungen bestehender Visa)
