The Kingdom of Tonga did not participate in the Ottawa Process and has not yet acceded to the Mine Ban Treaty. While it is now a member of the United Nations having been formally accepted on 14 September 1999, Tonga was absent from the vote on UNGA resolution 54/54B in support of the Mine Ban Treaty in December 1999.

It is believed that Tonga has never produced, transferred, stockpiled or used AP mines and does not contribute to humanitarian mine action programs.
