  Samoa
  Visa-free for 90 days (in any 180-day period)

All nationalities[1] traveling to Samoa do not require visas. All visitors must hold a passport valid for 6 months.[2][3] All visitors must have a return or onward ticket, copy of a bank statement, no record of deportation from other countries, no health problems that would pose a risk to Samoa, no history of criminal charges.[4]

Allowed stay[edit]

Visitors in general are allowed to remain in the country for 60 days. However, Samoa signed a mutual visa-waiver agreement with the European Union on 28 May 2015 which was ratified on 15 December 2015.[5] This agreement allows all citizens of states that are contracting parties to the Schengen Agreement to stay without a visa for a maximum period of 90 days in any 180-day period.[6]
