The objective of this research paper is to investigate the barriers encumbering the internationalization process of SMEs in Samoa. Structured questionnaires were used to collect data from 78 SMEs. This research is a noteworthy exploration of the obstacles affecting the performance of SMEs in Samoa. The research that has been conducted in the past was mostly confined to Asian countries, with very little in the area of SME internationalization and its impediments. Therefore, this research seeks to bring to the attention of policymakers the major obstructions and how these can be overcome and should set the impetus for further research in this area.
