New Zealand Inter Agency Understanding Signing


The finalisation of the Inter-Agency Understanding (IAU) between Tonga and New Zealand took place on 2007, with the signing of a revised IAU in 2015.


The purpose of the IAU is to set out the arrangements to facilitate access of Tonga citizens to seasonal work in the horticulture and viticulture industries under New Zealand’s Recognised Seasonal Employer Policy.


The signing of the IAU gave effect to the proper and efficient implementation of the Tonga NZ RSE project. Employment Unit of the Ministry of Internal Affairs is the leading agency in Tonga that is responsible for facilitating the RSE recruitment process.
