What should You Take Along During Visit

Take cash dollars as there are no banks in the Tokelau Islands. New Zealand currency is used here, but Samoan, American, and Australian banknotes can be exchanged if need be. Any personal medications, sunscreen, snorkeling gear, and ample reading material are other things to take. Suggested gifts for the family which accommodates you include rubber thongs, housewares, tools, fishing gear (stainless steel fishhooks, fishing line, swivels, sinkers, lures, mask and snorkel, and spear-gun rubbers), and perhaps a rugby ball or volleyball. The women will appreciate perfumes, deodorants, cosmetics, printed cloth, and dyes. Kitchen knives and enamel mugs are always welcome. Pictures of your own family back home will be viewed with interest.
