Seychelles now ready to welcome vaccinated travellers

Published on : Monday, January 25, 2021

Seychelles government now open for tourism but with limited entry. They are gearing up to open tourism but allow only those who have taken both the doses of Covid-19 vaccine and have a negative report from a RT-PCR test done 72 hours prior to the journey, shall be allowed to enter, according to an official statement on Wednesday.

On January 14, 2021, long after the pause Seychelles government announced that will soon open up the country for tourism in a two-step approach: the first phase is about allowing passengers 14 days after taking both the doses of vaccine as well as with Covid negative report from a test done 72 hours prior to the journey. The second phase will be from mid-March — by the time the Seychelles government expects to vaccinate significant section of its population — when non-vaccinated persons would be able to enter the country with just a Covid-negative report from a test done 72 hours prior to the journey, said the statement by the country’s tourism promotion board.

It has been also made official that with the focus on vaccine availability, it has been forecasted that 25 per cent of its population is likely to be vaccinated by mid-March and this will encourage tourism in the second phase, and boost business.

The country has thus adapted to some easy travelling norms and new regulations will help in maintaining tourism business while following social distancing and other covid protection norms. Seychelles is currently open to Indian visitors — who have not been vaccinated — through private jet transfers only, the statement noted. The non-vaccinated Indians can currently travel to Seychelles island on a private jet and with a Covid negative report of a test done 72 hours prior to the journey, it explained.
