The Seychelles has updated its entry requirements to allow vaccinated visitors “from any part of the world”.
The new measures have been announced following the start of a national immunisation drive – with the country aiming to became the first in the world to vaccinate more than 70% of its population over the age of 18.
To be recognised as “vaccinated”, visitors must be able to show that they have received a second dose of an approved Covid-19 vaccine, the Seychelles Tourist Office explained in a statement.
Visitors must submit an authentic certificate from their national health authority as proof of vaccination alongside a negative Covid-19 PCR certificate, obtained less than 72 hours prior to travel.
All non-vaccinated visitors currently permitted entry into the country must show a negative PCR test obtained less than 72 hours prior to travel.
