Seychelles opens tourism for vaccinated travellers

Published on : Thursday, January 21, 2021

The Seychelles government has recently opened the country for tourism for those who have taken both the doses of COVID-19 vaccine and have a negative report from an RT-PCR test done 72 hours prior to the journey, according to official reports. On January 14, the Seychelles government announced that it is opening up the country for tourism in a two-step approach- 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 in the first phase.


The country’s tourism promotion board said that the second phase will begin from mid-March by the time the Seychelles government expects to vaccinate a 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. It mentioned that by the ongoing numbers, the country has forecasted that 25 per cent of its population is likely to be vaccinated by mid-March which will witness the roll-out of the second phase of welcoming international tourists to the island nation.




It also added that the country will open up to all visitors, vaccinated or not and travellers planning a vacation during the time will only have to present a negative COVID-19 PCR certificate with the test taken maximum of 72 hours prior to departure with no quarantine upon arrival into the country.
