Vaccinated Requirements
Entry Requirements for Vaccinated Visitors
Proof of vaccination:

You will be required to show your COVID-19 vaccinations to enter into the country as fully vaccinated.  You will be able to do this using the NHS COVID app.

Test pre-travel/recovery certificate: Not required
On arrival:

To be classed as fully vaccinated, if you are over 18 you must have received the first 2 doses of a 2 dose vaccine and travel inside 6 months.  If it is greater than 6 months since your last dose of primary vaccine, then a booster is required to be classed as fully vaccinated.

Fully vaccinated for children aged 12 to 18 is the completion of 2 doses of a two dose vaccine with no time frame.

Children under 12 are exempt from testing even if not fully vaccinated and are asymptomatic.

You will be screened on arrival in the Seychelles and should ensure you are able to show your vaccination record.  If you do not qualify as above you will need to follow the unvaccinated requirements.

Form pre-travel:

A Traveller Health Declaration form will need to be completed before travel.  Please check on the link below to see when you are able to complete the form needed for your destination.  You may need to either complete this form electronically, or print out and take with you to show at the airport of departure and arrival. It is important that you check the form as early as you can for time frames as this may need to be completed up to 7 days before travel, or as little as 24 hours before travel.
