As travellers begin to explore once again, Seychelles has taken another crucial step in ensuring its tourism industry does not miss out on welcoming visitors to the stunning island destination. Seychelles’ Public Health Authority announced on 12 November 2021 that Bangladesh, Brazil, India, Nepal and Pakistan have been removed from the list of countries with restricted entry into Seychelles, effectively opening Seychelles’ borders to all destinations across the globe.

Travellers that had previously been in any of these five countries 14 days prior to arrival in Seychelles, were not permitted entry to the island nation.  However, the recent announcement now permits travelers from all countries to enter the destination, provided they have obtained a negative Covid-19 PCR test 72hrs prior to their arrival, and have completed the necessary travel authorization formalities.


This means that travelers and our partners from previous key markets such as India and Brazil can once again enjoy the tropical paradise of Seychelles – a destination popular for weddings and honeymoons in these markets.

This is another significant step in restoring the Seychelles’ vibrant tourism industry of Seychelles. The visa-free island nation has always had a policy of welcoming guests from different corners of the globe, showcasing the exceptional beauty and diversity of the islands. Although entry-conditions have relaxed, visitors and locals are still urged to adhere to public health and safety protocols.

As it stands there are currently no countries on Seychelles’ restricted list, and Mason’s Travel looks forward to renewed interest and bookings from our partner in these returning markets. Contact us for more information about our tours and services, of to help plan your client’s dream holiday.
