Travel Requirements: 

  • All travelers need a valid passport to enter the Seychelles. 
  • Fully vaccinated travelers only need to show proof of vaccination.   Fully vaccinated (as defined by the Seychelles authorities) means having completed a primary series (2 doses typically). If primary series of vaccinations were completed more than 6 months prior to your trip end date then you must have proof of primary series (2 doses typically) + booster
  • Unvaccinated travelers must provide a negative COVID-19 PCR or Antigen test confirmed 72 hours or less before departure for the Seychelles. 

 Pre-Trip COVID-19 Testing Options:  

  1. Locate a local COVID-19 testing facility that can guarantee results within the appropriate timeframe. 
  2. Contact The COVID Consultants and give them your timeline for travel and obtain a mail-in at-home test. 
  • All travelers need to carry travel health insurance that covers, at minimum, COVID-19 related isolation, quarantine and clinical care. 
  • All travelers need to complete a Seychelles Health Travel Authorization.  
    • Fully vaccinated travelers:  Can complete up to 5 days prior to travel.  
    • Unvaccinated travelers: Can complete upon receipt of negative PCR or Antigen test results.   
    • Note: processing can take up to 12 hours so please complete at your earliest allotted tome.  
  • Travelers going to Providence are required to be full vaccinated against COVID-19 and complete a Rapid Antigen COVID-19 test in Mahe.  This is not a requirement for other Seychelles destinations.  
  • All U.S. travelers are required to complete an antigen COVID-19 test to meet the CDC's requirements for re-entry to the United States prior to international departure. 


COVID-19 Testing for Re-Entry to the United States:

As of June 12th, 2022, The United States is no longer requiring a negative COVID-19 test result to re-enter the country.
