The Islamic population of American Samoa is negligible, but the territory's policy on Muslim travelers gained them international attention in the early 2000s. In 2002 American Samoa placed restrictions on Muslims entering their territory[1] without the express permission of the Attorney General of American Samoa.[2] The restrictions applied to those arriving from 25 nations with Muslim populations, including nearby Fiji which has a 10% Muslim minority. Fiji was removed from the list at the insistence of the Fijian government in 2003.[2]
