The Government has moved to repeal the Immigration Act 2004 with the Prime Minister saying the changes will bring the legislation up to date with international standards and boost border protection.

Tuilaepa Dr. Sa'ilele Malielegaoi, who introduced the bill in the Legislative Assembly during its one-day session on Tuesday, told the House that the new law will provide an updated framework that is in line with international standards for immigration processes and caters for a system that protects Samoa’s borders.
