Samoa is one of the safest travel destinations in the world however, we still recommend that you apply the same common sense approach to your health and safety as you would at home, by not leaving valuables unattended, and investing in both travel insurance and a basic travel first aid kit.
No vaccinations are required to enter Samoa unless you are arriving from, or transiting through, an area infected with yellow feature within 6 days.
The water in Samoa is generally safe to drink, although we recommend that travellers purchase bottled water, which is widely available. There are a dozen medical clinics found in Apia should you require a doctor. The Tupua Tamasese Meaole II National Hospital and Medcen (private hospital) are also located in Apia along with two private dentists and four pharmacies for your prescription needs.
