May + June: Many ferries booked out

Unlike in the years before the pandemic, when May and June were rather quiet in terms of visitor numbers, this year seems different.
Many Seychelles ferries are already fully booked for May and even June.

So please book your tickets as far in advance as possible, to avoid inconveniences due to completely booked out ferries.

No more PCR test for vaccinated Seychelles visitors

No more PCR test for fully vaccinated visitors entering Seychelles

Seychelles shifts its gears and allows visitors to enter the destination without having to present a negative PCR test.

Effective March 15, 2022, visitors over 18 years, having received the first two doses of the Covid-19 vaccine including a booster dose after 6 six months since completing the primary series; will be considered fully immunised. Fully immunisation for visitors aged 12 to 18 years, necessitate the completion of only two vaccine doses.

All fully immunised visitors will therefore be exempted from pre-travel PCR test requirement, while unvaccinated or partially vaccinated visitors will be required to present a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours or a rapid antigen test done in a certified laboratory within 24hrs before departure to Seychelles.

Potential visitors having tested positive to the COVID-19 virus -between 2 to 12 weeks prior to travel – are also exempted from pre-travel COVID-19 testing upon provision of proof of infection and recovery.

As safe tourism experience remains essential, all visitors will still require having a travel insurance in addition to their medical insurance cover and are encouraged to book their stay at a certified accommodation. Moreover, it is mandatory that all visitors apply for a Travel Authorization prior to travel.

The Seychelles have also recently eased other restrictions including the removal of the overnight curfew and closing time for entertainment services such as bars and casinos which became effective on March 1, 2022.

Shuttle bus is OK for tourists

Often customers ask us whether they are allowed to take a shuttle bus from the Seychelles airport to the ferry jetty or v.v.
While it is true that tourists currently may not use public buses due to COVID regulations, the shuttle bus (and the ferries) are exempt from this rule.

So in short:
Shuttle bus and ferry are OK for tourists.
Other public buses: Not OK for tourists.
