About Us

Our Mission

The Mission has been in operation for 42 years and is supported by the Samoa Consulate-General in Auckland. The Samoa High Commission is responsible to the Government of Samoa through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade. It was established to promote Samoa’s interests in economics, trade, tourism, as well as political and security objectives. The Mission also provides Consular services to Samoan nationals and foreigners travelling to Samoa.
