What Can I Do to Help Quarantine?

Foreign pests and diseases pose a huge danger to Samoa’s plants, animals and environment. Samoa is free of most dangerous pests and diseases and Quarantine wants to keep it that way.

You can make an important contribution to help Quarantine. That is, keeping the country free of unwanted organisms, preventing or reducing any damage these may cause should they occur, and protecting and preserving the land, water, industry and people of Samoa.

Keeping a Watch at Home

If you think you have found a pest, plant disease or animal disease that should not be in Samoa, report it by calling on phone 00685-20924 or e-mail: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Ensuring that all requirements met for Quarantine measures are in place to protect Samoa as listed below:

Travelling to Samoa - Preventing pests and diseases from entering Samoa is crucial. You must declare all restricted or quarantine risk goods when entering Samoa so that these items can be inspected.

Bringing in pets into Samoa - Quarantine requests to be aware of the requirements and restrictions for sending or bringing things into Samoa.

Yachts and Vessels- Quarantine would like the yacht owners to be aware of the requirements and restrictions when entering Samoa to prevent spread of pests and diseases. Please click here for more information on yachts.

Protection within Samoa

Quarantine also undertakes targeted post-border measures, which includes coordinating emergency responses to pest and disease incursions, monitoring and surveillances of these pests and diseases and creating education and awareness programs as well as materials for the general public and media.
