If your country requires a visa, the immigration officers will ask for your Visa when you enter The Seychelles Islands. Keep in mind some nationalities will require a paper visa. If that is your case, we suggest you contact your local embassy.

  • You can apply anytime, but remember we can only proccess your application with a max of 5 days prior arrival.
