The Government of the Kingdom of Tonga has approved the request of Tavake Tamafua Ltd, a US company, to obtain a gambling license. According to local media, the management of Tavake Tamafua has confirmed that they have fulfilled almost all the requirements necessary for filing documents for obtaining a license.
The company also reported that it has a letter from Tevita Lavemaau, a government minister, in which he supports the offer to open a casino in the country.
Tavake Tamafua Ltd is planned to receive exclusive rights to build gambling facilities in Tonga, the total value of which will be $ 450 million, in the near future.
Today any kind of gambling is banned in Tonga. Back in January, the press service of the country’s prime minister said that “filing applications from companies for obtaining a gambling license is a waste of time.”
