Visa Requirements


Visitors’ passports must be valid for at least six months from the date of arrival at Seychelles.


Entry visas into the Seychelles are provided free at the time of arrival irrespective of your nationality. However, you will need the following:

  1. A ticket for onward travel or a return journey at the time of arrival.
  2. Proof of reserved accommodation for the duration of the visit and proof of adequate funds of between US$ 100 and US$ 150 per day.
  3. A visitor’s permit that is issued on arrival, when the above two criteria are met. This visitor’s permit is issued for a period of one month and may be renewed one week before its expiry, only if the visitor holds a valid onward or return ticket.
  4. Avoid the disappointment or risk of a booking being made on your behalf. Make your booking before you travel.


Tourists in transit must have confirmed reservations for their onward journey.
