  2. Register on TALOFApass.as.gov at least 14 days before traveling to American Samoa.
  3. Confirm that you are fully vaccinated. Al travelers ages 5 and older must be fully vaccinated prior to traveling. Upload your proof of vaccination and submitted application 14 days before departure. It is recommended that you travel with a hard copy as well.
  4. Complete departure questionnaires in TALOFAPASS 48 hours before departure date to receive your QR confirmation code.

All individuals arriving at Tafuna International Airport will be subject to a COVID-19 test. If negative, travelers will be released and required to check in to TALOFAPASS five days after arrival. If positive, travelers will be transported to an isolation facility for five days and released for home isolation for another five days.
