Just over 3500 visitors have landed on Seychelles’ shores over the months of August and September, and efforts to attract yet more visitors and revive the country’s tourism industry amid the global Covid-19 pandemic are being stepped up.
Currently, visitors are permitted to travel to Seychelles if they are travelling from countries that are on the published list of permitted countries, provided that they have not been in a country not on the permitted list in the previous 14 days. If the travel involves a transit stop in a country not on the permitted list and the traveller does not leave the airport in the transit country, that traveller is permitted to travel to Seychelles. Conditions covering pre-travel, travel, arrival and stay in Seychelles remain in force and are detailed below.
In view of the continued surge in coronavirus (Covid-19) cases in Europe and elsewhere, visitors coming from those areas will as from October 1, 2020, be obliged to do a PRC test for Covid-19 48 hours before departure.
Furthermore, while in Seychelles, they will have to stay in special designated transit hotels for constant monitoring of the virus before being allowed to roam the country.
