Seychelles to open border to tourists 

Seychelles, an idyllic collection of islands off East Africa’s coast, follows in the footsteps of the Maldives’ in kickstarting its tourism. You won’t need to quarantine or be vaccinated to visit. You are free to roam Seychelles’ sandy white beaches and snorkel its warm turquoise waters after testing negative for COVID-19 within 72 hours of your departure. 

What is the current situation in Seychelles? 

Seychelles could be the first country in the world to reach herd immunity. The government and local health authorities are taking extensive measures to prevent the spread of the virus. More than 65% of the local population have already received their vaccinations, meaning the country can take further steps towards opening up to tourists. It has also been possible to enter the country without having to quarantine since 25 March. 

Below you have selected some of the Seychelles finest hotels with special offers available to Insignia members until the end of May.
