Important Notice on the Extension of Deadline For Payment of Teachers Registration Fees

The Teachers Council extends its warmest appreciation and a note of acknowledgement to ALL teachers who have paid their registration fees.

To date, there are a number of teachers who have not paid their registration fees despite numerous reminders. Given the importance and urgency of getting registered, the approved and final extension date for payments of registration fees is Friday 26th February, 2021.

You are urged to take note of the following process for paying the prescribed fee(s).

The fees must be paid to the cashier of the Ministry of Education, Sports and Culture that will be opened for UPOLU from Monday 15th – Friday 26th February 2021 and for SAVAII from Monday 22nd – Friday 26th February 2021. Your payment receipt will be required in order to take a passport photo.

You are required to pay the amount of $150.00 for full registration and issuance of registration certificate plus the Teacher license before end of business on Friday 26th February, 2021.

It is very important that you follow the schedule provided for easier management and smooth implementation of our payment process.  

You are also reminded to take this notice seriously, as your failure to pay your registration fees and obtain a Registration Certificate and  Teaching License would and can affect your eligibility to teach in any school within Samoa pursuant to Section 5(1), Section 17(2) and Section 20(1) of the Teachers Act 2016.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Litea Aleni and Regina Kelekolio of the Monitoring, Evaluation and Review Division (MERD) through email (Litea) and (Regina) on telephone number 64601/ 64600.

Faafetai lava,
