Tourist Visa For Seychelles

Planning a vacation to this tropical paradise ???  Wondering how to apply for a tourist visa from India?

Just chill, relax, start packing and booking your flight tickets and hotels as you don’t need a VISA to holiday in this stunning country.

NO VISA requirements to enter Seychelles



Processing Time:

The permit can be obtained at Seychelles airport itself. No prior documentation or visa application is needed.

Documents Needed:

  • Valid Indian Passport
  • Return or onward Tickets (Preferably printed copies)
  • Hotel Vouchers
  • Sufficient Money for your holiday ( Personal Experience: We visited in the month of Nov 2015 and the immigration officer did not ask us for any bank statements)

As per the guidelines, a Visitor’s Permit by the Seychelles Department of Immigration is issued for a stay of up to one month, but it can be extended for a further stay of up to three months from the date of issue.

Personal Experience: Not sure if there has been any change in the guidelines but we were granted the permit for 10 days i.e. duration of our stay on the island based on our return flights dates.

Fees :

It is free for first three months. But for any further extension, there is a fee that needs to be paid.
