Vaccination to visit the Seychelles

In a sign of things to come, the Seychelles is making it easier
for travelers vaccinated against COVID-19 to come and visit.

The Seychelles, an archipelago off the eastern coast of Africa,
is now
open to all visitors who have been vaccinated against
COVID-19
.

Previously, you could only visit from a country on the
approved list
— which certainly did not include the US —
and were required to take a mandatory test within 72 hours before
departure and undergo a 10-day quarantine upon arrival.

Starting now, the Seychelles will admit anyone, from any
country, as long as they can prove with a certificate from their
health authorities that they’ve had both doses of the COVID-19
vaccine. Note that travelers must have had their second dose at
least two weeks before departure.

In a
press conference
, Tourism Minister Sylvestre Radegonde said,
“We hope that this will open up the tourism industry for the
locals primarily for the small hotels who are struggling on La
Digue, Praslin and also on Mahe. And also provide the kick that our
economy desperately needs.”

Vaccinated travelers still need to present the negative results
of a COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours before departure to enter
the Seychelles.
