Samoa’s Ministry of health has stopped travellers from the United Kingdom and South Africa from entering the country under a new amended travel advisory for repatriation flights.

The new measure applies to passengers who transit through the two countries but all other travellers within the European and African regions will be assessed on a case by case basis.
