Staying healthy in Seychelles: Here’s what you need to know

Traveling to Seychelles presents a unique set of health considerations due to its geographical location, climate, and available medical facilities. Here's what travelers should know.

Make sure to stay updated on routine vaccines

  • Keep updated with Seychelles's COVID-19 requirements, such as quarantine, testing, or vaccine certificates, through your airline or the Seychelles government website.

  • Make sure your routine vaccines, such as measles-mumps-rubella (MMR), diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis, varicella (chickenpox), polio, and your yearly flu shot, are current.

  • While yellow fever vaccination is not required for direct entry from most countries, it is necessary if you're arriving from a country with a risk of Yellow Fever virus transmission.

Medical facilities

  • Seychelles has adequate health services, including a main hospital in Victoria, Mahé, and clinics on other islands. However, for severe cases, medical evacuation might be necessary.

  • There are smaller hospitals and clinics on Praslin and La Digue islands, catering to basic medical needs. However, facilities may be limited compared to those in larger countries, and severe cases may require medical evacuation.

  • There are a few private clinics in Seychelles, mainly in Mahé. These may offer quicker services than public options but at a higher cost.

Health insurance

We’d always recommend taking out health insurance before you travel anywhere from any destination.

Private healthcare is available in the Seychelles, but make sure your travel insurance covers the higher expenses for these services.

Contact your insurance provider before traveling to make sure you have the right level of coverage.

Other things to consider:

  • Trip cancellation, delay, and interruption benefits.

  • Medical expenses and medical evacuation benefits.

  • Baggage coverage.

Things to be aware of when visiting the Seychelles

Keep an extra eye on the following to keep healthy and safe during your trip to Seychelles:

1. Sun exposure: The tropical sun is strong. Use high-SPF sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and stay hydrated.

2. Water and food safety: Opt for bottled water and ensure food is freshly cooked and hot to avoid foodborne illnesses.

3. Swimming safety: Be cautious of strong currents and jellyfish. Stick to supervised beaches.

Medication for personal use

Follow these tips to bring into the Seychelles some over-the-counter medicines:

  • Declare all medications: Report all medication for personal use to customs authorities.

  • Original packaging: Always keep medicines in their original containers and transparent bags in your hand luggage.

  • Prescription or doctor's letter: Present the medical prescription issued by your doctor or other competent authority, in English.

  • Check for restrictions: Call the Seychelles's Embassy to verify that all of your prescriptions are legal to bring with you.

  • Quantity aligned with itinerary: Bring only a reasonable quantity that aligns with the duration of your stay to avoid complications.
