Entry/Exit Requirements for U.S. Citizens
Everyone needs a valid passport and an onward/return ticket to travel to Samoa, whether as a U.S. citizen or as a non-citizen U.S. national. A U.S. passport shows if you have U.S. citizen or non-citizen U.S. national status. U.S. citizens do not need a visa for stays in Samoa of 60 days or less. U.S. nationals of American Samoa living in American Samoa will need a visitor permit before travelling to Samoa. American Samoa-issued Certificates of Identity may be used to travel to Samoa only in certain limited cases.
U.S. nationals can apply for a visitor’s permit at the Samoa Consulate General office in Pago Pago, American Samoa:
