Seychelles To Reopen For Tourism On March 25

The Seychelles is set to reopen for tourists from March 25, 2021 irrespective of their vaccination status. The official announcement was made by the minister for foreign affairs and tourism, Sylvestre Radegonde, in a press briefing with the Seychelles Tourism Board (STB). Tourists will be required to present a negative PCR test taken 72 hours prior to departure.

Visitors from South Africa are still barred from entry

Quarantine requirements and restrictions on movement no longer apply to visitors arriving at Seychelles. However, visitors from South Africa are still barred from travelling to the destination. The decision will be reviewed in the upcoming weeks. Additionally, there is no minimum stay in establishments upon arrival.

While some rules have been relaxed, visitors will still have to follow all public health measures that have been put in place. This includes: wearing of face masks, social distancing and regular sanitisation or washing of hands. Visitors will now also have access to communal areas within the hotel premises inclusive of bars, swimming pools, spas and Kid’s clubs.

Minister Radegonde also explained that the decision to review and relax the entry procedures in the country is due to a successful and aggressive vaccination campaign that began earlier this year.
