Irrespective of the nationality of a visitor and his or her family members, there are NO VISA requirements to enter Seychelles. However, the following documents must be shown at the Seychelles International Airport in order to obtain immigration clearance:
i. A passport valid on the date of entry to and exit from Seychelles
ii. Return or onward ticket
iii. Proof of accommodation
iv. Sufficient funds for the duration of stay
Presentation of all the above will grant you a visitors permit valid for up to one month that will be issued by immigration officials upon arrival. The visitor's permit can be extended for a period of up to three months from the date of issue and capable of further extensions for successive periods not exceeding three months at a time to a maximum period of 12 months, provided that the person still meets the criteria of a bona fide visitor.
The visitor's permit is issued free of charge for the first three months after which there is a fee of SCR1,000 for extension covering each period of three months or any part thereof.
