Amid the fear of an ongoing surge in Coronavirus cases in India, Seychelles has issued new travel measures for visitors from India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh.
The Public Health Commissioner of Seychelles in a press conference announced that only vaccinated visitors from India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh who have completed two weeks after their second dose are permitted to travel to and enter Seychelles.
Travelers need to submit the proof of COVID-19 vaccination at the time of application for Health Travel Authorization on https://seychelles.govtas.com/ and are subject to verification and approval of the Public Health Authority.
Moreover, as per the new rules, all travelers will be required to present a negative PCR test taken a maximum of 72 hours prior to departure.
It must be noted that there will be no quarantine requirement, minimum stay nor restriction on movement for them upon entry into Seychelles.
It is not mandatory for children under 18 years of age to be vaccinated and can enter the country after presenting a negative PCR test taken a maximum of 72 hours prior to departure.
However, all visitors will still be required to adhere to other public health measures put in place in view of the pandemic which will include wearing face masks, social distancing, regular sanitization, and washing of hands.
