A free, 60-day visitor permit is granted to all visitors on arrival in Samoa (except for American Samoans).

Samoan visitor permits may be extended by several weeks at a time by the country’s Immigration Office. Take along your passport, wallet and two passport-sized photos and don’t make any other plans for the rest of the day. You may also need to have proof of hotel accommodation, onward transport and sufficient funds for your requested period of stay.
