The Indian Ocean island destination has announced that it will be welcoming visitors from across the globe, irrespective of their vaccination status, as from March 25, 2021. Visitors from South Africa will still not be permitted to enter Seychelles for the time being until further review.
The announcement was made by the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Tourism, Sylvestre Radegonde in a press briefing this morning, Thursday, March 4, 2021, at the Seychelles Tourism Board (STB) conference room at Botanical House following the Tourism Task Force Committee meeting.
- Visitors will now only be required to present a negative PCR test taken 72 hours prior to departure.
- There will be no quarantine requirement nor restriction on movement upon entry into Seychelles.
- Additionally, the minimum stay in establishments upon arrival will no longer be applicable.
However, visitors will still be required to adhere to other public health measures put in place in view of the pandemic these will include wearing face masks, social distancing, regular sanitisation, or washing of hands.
The new measures also give visitors access to all communal areas within the hotel premises inclusive of bars, swimming pools, spas, and Kid’s club.
Minister Radegonde stated that the decision to review and relax the entry procedures in the country has been made possible in view of the success registered in the aggressive vaccination campaign that the country embarked on earlier in the year.
