Said to be located a thousand miles from anywhere, the islands of the Seychelles are the epitome of peace and tranquillity, and have long been a dream destination for many.
Best experienced between May and October, they offer the visitor pristine white beaches, safe crystalline waters, diverse flora and fauna, and a wide variety of accommodation, which ranges from charming Creole guesthouses to luxurious private island getaways
To help you plan your holiday to the Seychelles, our Africa expert Felicity has put together a short guide on everything you need to know about travelling to the Seychelles post-lockdown.
The Seychelles government has made special provision for travellers from seven countries including the UK to be able to visit the country from 1 October. Prior to departure from their country of origin, visitors will have to submit a negative PCR test certificate from an accredited laboratory done within 48 hours from their time of departure.
Designated hotels and other forms of accommodations with the right facilities and amenities will be permitted to accommodate visitors for the first five days of their visits. Throughout that period, they will have to stay on the premises of the hotel. On the fifth day, visitors will be subjected to another Covid-19 PCR test, provided their test is negative, the visitor will be allowed to continue to enjoy their holiday as they would normally have. If the test results are positive, the visitor in question will be required to stay in a designated stay-safe hotel until cleared by the Seychelles Public Health Authority. The test will be free of charge.
Tourists are expected to follow social distancing and hygiene measures. Furthermore, they will be expected to have valid travel insurance with full medical coverage for the duration of their stay.
Social distancing measures are in place and tourists should abide by these as well as practicing good hygiene. Distancing is enforced on public transport and on internal flights the wearing of masks is mandatory.
No, you currently will not need to quarantine for 14 days once you return home.
