Australian Citizenship
For those requiring information about Australian Citizenship:

If you or your child was born in Australia, and have lived in Australia continuously from birth until the age of 10 years, then you will be eligible for Citizenship by birth; i.e. You are a New Zealand citizen and you have a child born in Australia, who has lived here for at least 10 years continuously since their birth, then your child may be eligible for Australian citizenship.

This information may or may not be true, and it is advised that you seek professional legal advice from a qualified lawyer or person.

For more accurate and expedient information contact the Embassy directly on the phone numbers listed above. However, do not call between 11:30 and 2:30pm, as they will most likely be on their lunch break. (They love their lunch)

If you live in Australia, your best option would be to visit them personally in Canberra. If not possible send them your details with any prescribed fee.

If you live in New South Wales, you may attend the office in Liverpool on 45-47 Scott Street for more direct and personal advice.

YOU CANNOT TRAVEL TO SAMOA ON A ONE-WAY FLIGHT. This has been the normal procedure for a very long time. You must travel with a return ticket to Samoa at all times, otherwise you will be refused travel at the departing airport.

However, the only way to travel on a One-Way ticket is to get an Exemption Visa Stamp on your passport from the embassy. The fee is approximately $50 AUD for the stamp, then you can freely travel indefinitely to Samoa for the duration of your passport expiry.


If you want to do business in Samoa, it is best to go directly to Samoa to make arrangements with the departments there, as you will not likely have calls or emails answered or responded to. You are more likely to have a better picture of the demographics and the viability of establishing a business there, rather than asking questions on an unmonitored forum.

responding to Travel Policies
Hi Angeline,

My mum left on the day before your mum left and she was able to get on the flight with a one way ticket. I've just paid for her return last week so im not sure why your mother wasnt allowed on the flight? I booked mine online directly through virgin samoa.. maybe its with airlines?
