Seychelles has eased its restrictions for certain countries, with effect today (September 13). This includes opening it up to South Africans.
In the latest Health Entry and Stay Conditions for Travellers update (V3.5), entry and stay conditions will not be affected by COVID-19 vaccination status, but visitors are strongly encouraged to be fully immunised before travel. Passengers will need to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test done within 72 hours of departure, and complete a Health Travel Authorisation at https://seychelles.govtas.com/.
Travellers will need to provide proof of valid travel and health insurance to cover COVID-19-related quarantine, isolation or treatment.
Visitors who have been in Bangladesh, Brazil, India, Nepal and/or Pakistan – which remain on the Restricted List – in the preceding 14 days will, however, not be permitted entry into Seychelles.
