Samoa Travel Health Advice

Proof of a yellow fever vaccination is required for all travellers arriving from infected areas. Vaccinations are also recommended for hepatitis A, hepatitis B and typhoid. The most significant health risk in Samoa is over-exposure to the sun so precautions should be taken to protect the skin.

Medical care in Samoa is limited but generally adequate for routine health problems. Comprehensive travel health insurance is recommended but visitors should note that most doctors will expect payment in cash upfront regardless of insurance coverage.
