Updated travel lookout

Seychelles lighten entry requirements

The Seychelles have announced revised travel regulations, which will make the island destination more accessible.

Non-vaccinated visitors from Category 1 countries still need to submit a negative PCR test certificate obtained less than 72 hours prior to travel to Seychelles. Visitors from Category 2 countries are required to submit a test no less than 48 hours prior to travel.

Seychelles’ borders are open to all travellers — from any country — that have received both doses of the covid-19 vaccine. Travellers will need to submit proof that they have received the second dose no less than two weeks prior to travel, together with a negative PCR test taken no more than 72 hours before travelling.

A campaign by the Seychelles Ministry of Health to immunise 70% of Seychelles’ adult population is well underway. This target is expected to be reached by mid-March, when it is announced that the Seychelles plan to open its borders to travellers from all countries. All travellers, irrespective of their vaccination-status, will be required to submit a negative PCR test taken no more than 72 hours prior to travel.

Strict health and safety measures, such as diligent sanitisation, social distancing and wearing a mask will still be in place.
