The Seychelles Ministry of Health released updated conditions of entry to the island nation for Seychellois, residents, foreign workers (GOP-holders) and their dependents. The new conditions pertain to entry from restricted countries, such as India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nepal and South Africa, and do not apply – at present – to visitors to Seychelles.


Under the new conditions Seychellois travellers, permanent residents and their dependents must undergo a 10-day quarantine in an approved establishment or quarantine facility when entering Seychelles from a restricted country, with a surveillance PCR test taken seven days after arrival. Similar conditions apply to GOP (Gainful Occupation Permit) holders, with the exception of travellers coming from Brazil, who may still not enter Seychelles within 14 days of departure from the South American country. In addition, GOP-holders must take a Rapid Antigen Test within 48 hours of entry to Seychelles.  GOP-holders travelling from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh or Nepal will only allowed entry to Seychelles via chartered flight.


The above revisions do not apply to tourists or visitors. Tourists/visitors who have been in Bangladesh, Brazil, India, Nepal, Pakistan or South Africa in 14 days preceding their intended date of arrival, will not be allowed entry into Seychelles.

Visitors from all other countries my enter Seychelles, regardless of their vaccination status. Visitors must submit a negative PCR test, taken 72 hours prior to departure and must apply online for Travel Health Authorisation at
