Samoan woman welcomes visitors to her home in Samoa.

Visiting Friends and Family in Samoa

Talofa, welcome home!

Samoans who live abroad love coming to their homeland to reconnect with family and friends, immerse themselves in culture, and truly appreciate how lucky they are to come from our beautiful islands.

The chance to visit relatives and friends often means large group gatherings. 

Getting organised

If you've been away for many years and are planning to tour around Samoa with your extended family, it is often easiest to hire a van, which are available from most vehicle rental companies

If you plan to drive you should ensure you have your foreign drivers’ licence so you can be issued with a local temporary licence.

If accommodation in your village is scarce or you want some time for yourselves to explore other parts of Samoa, it’s easy to find and book accommodation throughout Samoa.

There are many options to suit all budgets and requirements, and treating yourself to a beachside holiday with a pool may be just what you need to make your visit extra special.
