Entry Requirements

Do you need a Visa to go to the Seychelles?

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

However, to gain entry to the Seychelles, all visitors require a passport, valid at least up until the departure date, and with two or more blank pages within. Children require their own identification (Child Passport). Visitors also require a booking confirmation for accommodation (for at least the first three nights, including contact details), a return or onward flight ticket, and sufficient funds for the duration of their stay (approximately €135 / $150 per day)

Entry requirements in Covid-19 times

Since August 2020, tourists from certain countries are allowed to travel to the Seychelles again. In order to ensure that you have a safe holiday, there are a few things to consider before you arrive or leave. Here you can find all the information you need to organise your trip to Seychelles during Covid-19 times.

Other Guidelines

  • 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.

    Which Vaccinations are required for the Seychelles?

    There are no required vaccinations for the Seychelles except for visitors travelling from a yellow fever area. For these travellers, a valid proof of yellow fever vaccination is required.


    Customs Formalities for the Seychelles

    Travellers from Europe may import unlimited amounts of foreign currency into the Seychelles. However, the national currency may only be imported in amounts of up to SCR 2,000 - approximately equivalent to €115.

    In addition, the following import limits apply: 2 litres of spirits or liquor, 2 litres of wine, 200ml of perfume or eau de toilette, 200 cigarettes or 250g of tobacco. The import of weapons of any kind is prohibited, and requires special authorisation. The value of food brought in may not exceed €200 in value (SCR 3,000). Anything beyond this is taxed in the local currency and must be paid in cash on the spot (credit card payment not possible).


    Animals: Can you bring pets to the Seychelles?

    Animals may only be brought into the Seychelles if they will be staying for more than six months. Entry with cats and/or dogs requires authorisation by the Veterinary Office. Any animals require a valid vaccination certificate, with proof of a rabies vaccination and an animal health certificate. Depending on the country of origin, the animals must stay in quarantine for two weeks to six months before being granted access. Bird species are not allowed to be brought into the country.
