Packaging when shipping to Samoa
Before you send your parcel off to the Independent State of Samoa you are going to want to make sure all your goods are properly and securely packaged and that your paperwork is in order.
Parcel transit times to Samoa
The amount of time it takes your goods to get to the location you want to ship to in the Independent State of Samoa will be dependent on a few factors. The most important factor that plays a part in this puzzle is where you are shipping your items from in the first place. Beyond this, the mode in which you chose to send your items is another determining factor in the speed of your delivery. Many companies that ship via air mail will offer some option for expedited shipping for an additional fee. This may be worth looking into if you have a time sensitive parcel that you are trying to ship there.
Parcel documents delivering to Samoa
When shipping a parcel to the Independent State of Samoa, you are going to want to fill out your paperwork in either English or the Samoan language as both of them are acceptable there. A Bill of Lading and a Certificate of Origin are a must, although you may be required to have more documentation affixed to your particular parcel based upon what you are trying to ship there. For instance, if you are shipping a live plant there, then you will need a permit stating your prior approval from their government to do so attached to your shipment. Without this permit, your shipment will be seized and possibly returned to you, the sender, at your own expense. This is why it is a good idea to always check for their current listings of prohibited and restricted items to make sure your goods are even allowed to be shipped there. If you have any questions on these lists, you can either contact their government directly or talk to your shipping company about it.
