Naturalisation and citizenship in Samoa

Hello everyone,

What are the requirements for acquiring citizenship in Samoa? For example, length of residence, language requirements, employment etc..

What formalities are involved in the process?

What is the policy on dual-citizenship in Samoa? Do you have to give up your former nationality?

What are the advantages and benefits of acquiring Samoan citizenship, in your opinion?

Thank you for sharing your experience.


Hi, Bhavna

Have you found any answers to your questions elsewhere?
My wife and I are traveling to Samoa in Dec 2017 to find out how you can live / retire in Samoa long term and will be speaking with the immigration minister, so hopefully
can supply you with some answers!
