Entry requirements

This page has information on travelling to Seychelles.

This page reflects the UK government’s understanding of current rules for people travelling on a full ‘British Citizen’ passport from the UK, for the most common types of travel.

The authorities in Seychelles set and enforce entry rules. If you’re unsure how Seychelles’ entry requirements apply to you, contact its UK embassy, high commission or consulate.

All travellers

From 1 December 2022, Seychelles will no longer require COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test from visitors. However, they will need to complete the Travel Declaration and have a valid Travel and Health Insurance to cover for potential COVID-19 related costs.

Proof of vaccination status

Proof of vaccination is no longer required.
