With our borders reopening to international travellers from 1st August, we want to ensure you’re aware of the entry requirements so that you can go about planning and booking your Samoan adventure. Samoa’s entry conditions have been eased to-date and in the lead-up to reopening, the Ministry of Health has indicated that requirements will be relaxed further, giving confidence and inspiring travellers.
