Travel to the Seychelles

There are no COVID-19 restrictions in place for travel to Seychelles. There is no requirement to present certificates of vaccination/testing for COVID-19.

All visitors are required to complete a digital Travel Authorisation immigration form in advance of travel. 

The Seychelles continues to experience community transmission of COVID-19, and a number of measures are in place to control the spread of the virus. We advise those travelling to the Seychelles to respect local regulations and follow public health requirements. The latest information on theSeychelles COVID-19 response and public health measures currently in place is available at www.health.gov.sc.

As there is no Irish Embassy in Seychelles, we are limited in the help we can offer you in an emergency. However, if you need assistance, you can contact the Irish Embassy in Tanzania.

Get travel and medical insurance

Before travelling, we strongly recommend that you obtain comprehensive travel insurance which will cover all overseas medical costs, including medical repatriation/evacuation, repatriation of remains and legal costs. You should check any exclusions and, in particular, that your policy covers you for the activities you want to undertake.

Vaccinations

Check what vaccinations you may need for your trip at least eight weeks before you travel. We can’t advise you on vaccinations, but you can get information about vaccinations from your local GP or an International Health and Travel Centre.

Evidence of vaccination (in the form of a certificate) can be a requirement for entry to some countries.

Medication

Make sure you bring enough medication for your entire trip and for any unexpected delays. You may wish to also bring copies of your prescription in case you lose your medication.

Entry requirements (visa/passport)

The Seychelles is a visa-free country and passports should be valid for the duration of the intended visit. More information can be found here.

It’s advisable to take a number of photocopies of your passport with you when travelling to the Seychelles and you should carry a photocopy of your passport at all times during your stay.

If your passport is lost or stolen while you’re abroad you should contact the Irish Embassy in Dar es Salaam in Tanzania. We’ll do our best to help you as quickly as possible but this can take some time. Your location and circumstances may limit the help we can give you.

What we can do:

  •  Issue an emergency travel document that will get you home;
  •  If required, provide advice on applying for new passport.

You will need a police report if you want to make a claim on your travel insurance. We will not provide you with a travel document without a police report.
