No, Indian citizens do not require a visa to enter Seychelles for a short stay. A visitor’s permit is issued on arrival in Seychelles to travelers visiting for the purposes of holiday, business, visiting friends or family.
Travellers must meet the following criteria:
Indians will be issued a Visitor’s Permit valid for a stay of up to 30 days. The stay can be extended in 3 month increments to an aggregate stay of 1 year.
Yes. The permit is valid for the whole of Seychelles.
The Seychelles Embassy in New Delhi does not issue any visa or entry permit before travel. Applicants must obtain the permit on arrival itself.
Indians are not liable to face a rejection. However, the above said documents are necessary to enter the country. Failure to produce any of the documents may result into rejection of the Visitor permit, thereby barring you from entering the country. The final decision to grant an entry permit is solely at the discretion of the Immigration officials at Seychelles airport.
Usually, it takes around 15 minutes to get all formalities done and get the permit on arrival at Paro. However, the time may vary depending on the peak travel period.
After landing at Seychelles airport, kindly head to the Immigration counter. The immigration authorities will most likely ask basic questions such as the reason for travel and duration of stay. Overall, it takes about 15-20 minutes to issue an entry permit. The whole method is hassle-free and easy.
Applicants are strongly advised to purchase a Travel Insurance to secure their trip in the event of unexpected events such as medical emergencies, flight cancellations, baggage delay or loss etc.
