#Seychelles outlines once again requirements for arriving tourists


(Posted 13th August 2020)

As the world recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic that brought tourism and travel to a standstill, Seychelles is focused on resuming operations within the ‘new normal’ context.

Seychelles has so far, recorded a very low number of cases and there has been no community transmission, deaths nor any infection amongst health care workers. With traveller’s wellbeing and that of the local population at heart, Seychelles has put in place protocols to ensure safe travel and stay for its visitors. While visitors enjoy their stay, it is essential that they remain conscious of these safety measures to keep Seychelles safe.

The procedures and restrictions present in this advisory are applicable to visitors staying at tourism accommodation establishments as well as liveaboards that meet the safety criteria. The content of this advisory may be revised periodically based on the guidance of the Public Health Authority.

As of 1st August 2020, Seychelles International Airport is open for scheduled commercial flights. Only passengers from permitted countries published by the Public Health Authority will be allowed in the country.

Visitors are requested to adhere to all measures stated in this advisory and ensure that all requirements are met prior to arrival, failing which, may result in restriction of entry.

A separate advisory for returning residents and GOP holders is available on the website of the Department of Health at http://www.health.gov.sc
