This island paradise opens to tourism

The Seychelles hopes to open up to all international visitors starting March 25, 2021, without quarantine or movement restrictions.

Tourists looking for an island getaway, take heed: As of March 25, the Seychelles is opening its borders to all international visitors, regardless of their vaccination status. The only requirement from visitors is to present a negative PCR test taken 72 hours prior to departure, but all quarantine requirements or movement restrictions will no longer apply.

Another restriction to be lifted soon is the minimum stay in establishments upon arrival, though visitors will still be required to adhere to public health measures such as face masks, social distancing and regular washing of hands.

Mr. Sylvestre Radegonde, Minister for Foreign Affairs and Tourism, confirmed this relaxation of entry measures due to an ‘aggressive’ vaccination campaign throughout the island country.

“The vaccination campaign has been quite successful,” said Radegonde. “The government has done everything in its power to make sure that the population is protected. We have now arrived at the point, where opening our borders further is the next step to allow for our economic recovery. The measures being announced reflect broadly the recommendation of our tourism partners and have been done in full consultation with and the endorsement of our health authorities.”
