It depends on the Roman missionary Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples, yet is exceptionally not exempt but instead is a suffragan of a Metropolitan archdiocese. Since 21 March 2003, that metropolitan see has been the Archdiocese of Suva; until that date, it had been a different see, i.e., the Archdiocese of Samoa-Apia.
The Diocese of Tarawa, Nauru and Funafuti was split on 10 September 1982 into the Diocese of Tarawa and Nauru and the Mission Sui Iuris of Funafuti.
