Safety and Security

Do not travel.

We now advise all not to travel overseas at this time, due to the health risks from the COVID-19 pandemic and the significant disruptions to global travel. This includes to Samoa. If you’re already overseas and wish to return to Australia, we recommend you do so as soon as possible by commercial means. If you're an Australian resident travelling from Australia you'll need to self-quarantine for 14 days in Samoa and carry a medical certificate issued within three days prior to entering Samoa. If you’ve travelled outside of Australia within the last 30 days, you’ll also need to self-quarantine for 14 days in Australia before coming to Samoa. If you’re travelling from or transiting other countries, other entry restrictions apply. For more information on entry requirements check the Government of Samoa or Samoan Ministry of Health websites. Entry and exit requirements can change at a short notice. Check with your airline or tour operator to find out the latest requirements. See Travel We now advise you to: Do not travel to Samoa.
