SEYCHELLES IS OPEN: Seychelles fully re-opened for tourism in January 2022

The Seychelles Travel Authorization is a mandatory travel document that all visitors must submit to enter Seychelles. It is part of the new health measures created for the current coronavirus pandemic. Do not forget that it does not replace a visa nor any other travel authorization required by some nationalities.

Get started here.

Anyone who wants to go to the Seychelles must submit the Seychelles Travel Authorization before their arrival, even if it is a short visit. There are no exceptions for any visitors.

All nationalities can apply here.

To get this travel authorization, you will have to report specific information about yourself, your trip, and your medical status prior to arriving in the country. A negative COVID-19 Test result from a certified laboratory is also required to meet entry requirements. Only fully vaccinated travelers are exempted from the testing requirement.

Go to our application page to acquire the Seychelles Travel Authorization.

After you submit the form, we will start processing your document and shortly after you will receive a confirmation in your email. Check the FAQs below to view testing requirements to enter the Seychelles.

  • Applicant's Photo

  • Negative pre-departure COVID-19 test result

  • Medical proof of COVID-19 vaccination (if applicable)

Important Instructions
  • The Seychelles Islands Travel Authorization is part of the required documents you will need to enter The Seychelles Islands. It DOES NOT replace a visa. 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 process your application with a max of 5 days prior arrival.

  • Each individual must apply individually for the HTA. Parents or the accompanying adult is responsible for filling in the application for under 18s.

  • Unvaccinated travelers must have a negative COVID-19 PCR certificate from an authorized laboratory dated no more than 72 hours or an antigen test within 24 hours from the date of travel.

  • Airlines, ships, and airports may submit travelers to further medical tests independently from the certificate provided when applying for the HTA.

  • Proof of accommodation is required to obtain the travel document. The dates in this document MUST match the travel dates selected in the application. This is a requirement that is demanded by the government in order to issue the travel document.

  • You must buy a ticket and reserve your accommodation in Seychelles before completing the STA application because the flight number or vessel identification and information regarding your accommodation at the destination is required for an HTA application.

  • It is important that all provided information is as accurate as possible including travel itinerary, residence, accommodation at destination and phone number.

  • Visitors must ensure that accommodation bookings are made only at licensed establishments or liveaboards that have been certified by the Public Health Authority.

  • Visitors must have valid travel health insurance for Seychelles.

  • If you are not able to provide the necessary documents, you will need to re-apply once you have acquired them.

  • The application can be made between 72 and 1 hour before departure. The reviewing process may take up to three hours before validation.
