Members & Observers


Tonga became a member of the APG in May 2005.

Tonga is currently strengthening its anti-money laundering and combating the financing of terrorism system. Tonga has enacted anti-money laundering laws with respect to narcotic offences and some serious offences.

Tonga underwent its second Mutual Evaluation in 2019, with the report adopted and published by the APG in September 2021, after a pause of the ME process due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The MER provides a snapshot of Tonga’s system as at the date of the onsite visit in October-November 2019. The full Tonga Mutual Evaluation Report is available for download via the Documents section of this website under Members and Observers and under Mutual Evaluation Reports - 3rd Round.
