Efforts being stepped up to revive tourism industry

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.

Conditions for entry of persons into Seychelles

These guidelines will be in force as from October 1, 2020 and will be reviewed periodically.

 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.
