Seychelles has begun to ease its travel restrictions, having reopened its borders to commercial flights from certain areas from August 1. The Department of Health in Seychelles has published a list of originating countries considered low to medium risk. Travelers originating in countries that are considered high risk will not be permitted entry until further notice. Travelers intending to travel to the Seychelles should check Seychelles government updates, and contact their airline to confirm they will be allowed to enter. Non-residents must have a hotel reservation confirmation. From 1 October, travelers from the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Austria and the UAE will be allowed to travel to Seychelles under specific conditions.
The Department of Health has specified separate entry requirements for visitors and for returning residents or work permit holders. A full list of entry guidelines and application forms can be found on Department of Health website. A completed application for entry into Seychelles must be submitted to the Public Health Commissioner before boarding. The form can be obtained at http://tourism.gov.sc .
Travelers must have a medical certificate with a negative COVID-19 test result issued at most 72 hours before arrival and are subject to medical screening. Travelers from "special status countries" must present a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 48 hours prior to departure to Seychelles and required to stay in one establishment (specifically authorized to accommodate) for the first 5 days after entering Seychelles. On the 5th day after arrival, all visitors from “special status countries” must have a PCR Covid-19 test.
If the PCR test is negative, they will be free to travel within Seychelles. If the PCR test is positive they will be required to stay in a designated establishment or medical facility until recovery and cleared by the Public Health Authority.
