Seychelles to allow entry to vaccinated travelers from India

The beautiful island nation of Seychelles has said it will admit travelers who have been vaccinated from India. Seychelles is one of the favorite beach destinations for tourists, but due to the high rate of coronavirus infection, India has been banned by almost every country in the world. However, Seychelles decided to impose reasonable restrictions on all South Asian countries, including India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh.

The announcement was made by the Seychelles Public Health Commissioner, who said entry will be allowed to fully vaccinate travelers from India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh. He also said vaccinated travelers must complete two weeks after the second dose before obtaining a permit to enter Seychelles with proof of vaccination.

All documents mentioned above must be presented at the time of submitting the health travel permit application. Passengers will also need to have a negative RT-PCR test 72 hours prior to departure.

If a person has all valid documents, then there is no need for quarantine. There is also no minimum stay or movement restriction in Seychelles. Children under 18 years of age can be admitted after having negative RT-PCR. But travelers will need to follow COVID-related health protocols and should wear face masks, maintain social distancing, and wash their hands regularly.

Seychelles apparently started entertaining foreign tourists as of March 25, 2021.
