We have seen much change in the past few months in entry requirements for Seychelles as it cautiously opened it doors to visitors. The most recent pushes the doors even wider, welcoming visitors from around the world.
As of 25th March 2021, the Seychelles will open to all visitors irrespective of their vaccination status. South Africa will remain the only country from which visitors will temporarily not be permitted. Visitors will be required to present a negative PCR test taken 72 hours prior to departure. There will be no quarantine requirement nor restriction on movements upon entry into Seychelles. However, visitors will still be required to adhere to the public health measures in place in view of the pandemic.
