The best way to get a license:
You can obtain a temporary amateur radio license if you send the necessary documents and the money (bank cheque) to the licensing authority. They prefer that you go to their main office in Mata'Utu and they will give you personaly the license. The license is valid up to 3 months. Normally they assign FW/<home callsign> callsigns. I was lucky to obtain FW5FN !!
2'000 F CFP (Pacific Francs) or 110 FF (French Francs) or 16.76 Euro => about 20 USD

Ask! They may assign callsigns with the prefix TW for special events.
