There's good news for everyone who's planning to visit Seychelles. It's a visa-free access country! That means that tourists don't need to obtain a visa to enter Seychelles. Upon entry into Seychelles, the passport is stamped with a visitor's permit, if some prerequisite conditions are fulfilled. This permit is valid until three months from the date of arrival. What's even better? This permit is free of cost, i.e. one isn't charged to enter Seychelles!

Conditions for Entry into Seychelles

One needs to have a valid passport as one would naturally expect when taking an international trip. The passport needs to be valid till the end of the trip in Seychelles or till the holder of the passport returns to their home country. The other conditions that are required for one to be eligible for the visitor's pass are:
  • The person visiting Seychelles isn't a prohibited immigrant
  • The person visiting Seychelles is not a resident of Seychelles
  • The person visiting Seychelles holds a valid return or onward ticket out of Seychelles
  • The person visiting Seychelles have confirmed accommodation in Seychelles
  • The person visiting Seychelles have sufficient funds to support their stay in Seychelles, i.e. have enough money to fund their stay in Seychelles. The minimum amount is around USD 50 or equivalent per day of the trip.

Documents Required

All the documents mandated by the immigration officials have been listed below and are required to be submitted-
  • Confirmed air ticket
  • Two passport-sized photographs
  • Original valid passport
  • Adequate funds for the span of the stay in Seychelles
  • Proof of hotel accommodation or a letter of invitation if visiting friends, family or company
The process itself is very simple since there isn't anything specific that one has to do other than have all the prerequisites ready. Upon arriving in Seychelles, the passport is stamped with the entry permit allowing one to stay in Seychelles until 3 months! So, all one has to do really is to plan their trip and go.

So, what's keeping you from packing your bags and going and visiting Earth's own slice of Paradise in Seychelles? No long and expensive visa procedure acting as a deterrent. Go out there and make some memories which will last you a lifetime!
