Entry in Seychelles resumes to pre-COVID protocols from December 1, 2022, as the last COVID-19 travel requirements are removed.
Unvaccinated and partially vaccinated visitors disembarking in Seychelles will not be required to present a negative PCR or antigen test to be allowed entry into the country. Similarly, fully vaccinated passengers will not be required to show proof of vaccination either.
However, all visitors will be required to complete their travel declaration online through www.govtas.sc and provide valid travel insurance to cover for any potential COVID-19-related costs.
Commenting on the matter, Mrs. Sherin Francis, Principal Secretary for Tourism, stated that this indicates that the industry’s recovery is almost complete. As a small island destination, Seychelles being heavily dependent on tourism, we needed the last of these measures to be removed and for travel to be as unobstructed as possible.
“Similar to March 15, 2021, December 1, 2022, will be a date to be remembered for Seychelles.”
“We took many risks while navigating our way through the recovery of our local tourism industry, and it has borne fruit. Today, as the destination’s arrival numbers are skyrocketing to pre-pandemic figures, we mark another important moment for travelers. It is yet another milestone for our industry, and we anticipate that this decision will be one that would boost travel to our small destination,” said Mrs. Francis.
