Do I need a Visa for Seychelles?


You do not need a visa to go to Seychelles. This applies to nationals of any country.

To enter Seychelles, however, all tourists must have a passport that is valid for at least six months beyond their departure date and has at least two blank pages. Identification is also required for children. A booking confirmation for accommodation (for at least the first three nights, including contact information), a return or onward airline ticket, and adequate finances for the duration of their stay (about €135 / $150 a day) are also required.

Entry requirements during Covid-19.

Tourists from selected nations have been allowed to visit Seychelles again from August 2020. There are a few things to think about before you arrive or depart to ensure that you enjoy a safe holiday.

  • Spot-checks are carried out, so you should be sure to adhere to the entry requirements to avoid problems.
  • Financial resources may be carried in cash, travel vouchers, or credit cards.
  • Upon presentation of the above documents, visitors will be issued a visitor’s permit automatically upon entry. This does not need to be requested in advance.
  • The permit then issued at passport inspection is valid for 30 days. Anyone wishing to stay more than 30 days can increase the duration of their permit in increments of three months up to one year, as long as the appropriate conditions are still fulfilled.
  • An immigration form will be handed out by the flight crew shortly before landing which should be completed and handed over at time of entry.
