For departures from 1st September 2023, the Seychelles Ports Authority will apply an embarkation fee (port fee) for all adult passengers.
Children aged 0-12 years are exempted from the port fee.
This port fee will be charged at a rate of 2 EUR or 25 SCR (Seychelles Rupies), per trip.
Clients with a through ticket Mahe/La Digue or vice versa will still pay Euro 2 per adult.
From 01 September onwards, the port fee will automatically be applied to all Cat Cocos bookings.
For Cat Rose bookings (Praslin – La Digue), the port charge will be paid on site in Seychelles Rupies (25 SCR) or 2 Euro per adult. Payment in Euro coins will not be accepted.
We of SeyFerry are far from happy about this decision of the Seychelles Ports Authority and the Government of Seychelles and especially about the introduction of this new tax at such short notice. However, we have to comply with the decision as the Seychelles Parliament has passed the relevant legislation.
