Samoa reopening to tourism later this year

Tuesday, May 03, 2022 0

The Samoan Government announced it will be reopening its border to international travellers from around August to September this year.

Prime Minister Fiame Naomi Mata’afa has confirmed the country will welcome arrivals of Samoan citizens and foreign contractors from May, and then allow travellers from August/September.

It remains subject to Samoa’s vaccination progress and the removal of restrictions for quarantine-free travel.

The Samoa Tourism Authority (STA) has been working hard behind the scenes with local operators and national bodies to ensure it is ready for travellers in the coming months.

Samoa Tourism Authority’s acting CEO, Dwayne Bentley, welcomed the announcement.

“Samoa has been striving to ensure critical components of our travel-ready toolkit are in place. All of these efforts ensure we are in a top position to safely open borders,” he said.

Samoa is less than a four hour flight from New Zealand and under six hours from Australia’s east coast.
