Recognition of religion or belief in Tonga
According to the standards set out in the SRR, conditions for RoRB in the Kingdom of Tonga are classified apathetic.
Recognition and registration are amalgamated rather than ideally differentiated; a focus is placed on the latter as legal registration; this legal registration process is two-pronged which isn't ideal and primarily consists of financial benefits.
Some of the restrictions imposed on unregistered groups, particularly the importation of religious goods and fundraising, make registration seem borderline mandatory for religious groups to operate some basic functions.
Freedom of religion or belief is broadly though not universally upheld by the government in practice.
Horizontal recognition is in effect.
Establish a revitalised recognition system that crucially provides existential recognition and legal registration to all belief systems and their derivatives without discrimination.
Revoke borderline mandatory registration requirements.
To become classified as dynamic, establish a recognition agency that is autonomous of government control that is responsible for managing the recognition system.
