How to obtain the license:
You can obtain a temporary amateur radio license without any problems if you send the necessary documents and the money (bank cheque) to the licensing authority. Send your paperwork at least one month in advance. They prefer that you go to their main office in Mata'Utu and they will give you personally the license. I've got a copy of the license in advance by e-mail. The license is valid up to 3 months.
Normally they assign FW/<home callsign> callsigns. I was lucky to obtain FW5FN !!
The main office is located near the cathedral and the king's house. Ask for the "Chef de service".

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