The Seychelles’ Government has made this solution available as a secure platform with the purpose of allowing travelers to gather information and initiate the authorization process. An HTA application can be completed through this official website or through the “Seychelles Travel Authorization” official mobile application and must be done for each individual who intends to travel by air or sea.
Please take into consideration that you are only allowed to travel once your application has been approved by the Seychelles Government.
Visitors coming from countries that appear on the “permitted list” require a negative PCR certificate no more than 72 hours old from the date of travel.
Please be aware that visitors coming from high-risk countries will not be authorized to enter Seychelles even if a valid PCR test is presented. There may be exceptions for Seychellois and resident permit holders.

Yes. The Health Travel Authorization is mandatory for all individuals, national and foreign citizens, of all ages, that want to enter into Seychelles.
The application can be made between 72 and 3 hours before departure. The reviewing process may take up to three hours before validation. You will not be able to travel if your application has not been approved by the time of your departure.
In case of an emergency or unplanned departure to the Seychelles, an express application is available. The reviewing takes only up to 10 minutes and comes with an additional charge of 90 Euros per applicant.
You can check the status of your application at any time by visiting the following URL: https://seychelles.govtas.com/application-check
Within minutes after submitting your application, the system will send you an email confirming receipt of your application. This email will contain the Reference number assigned to your application. Use this number to check your application status. Do not immediately re-apply for a Health Travel Authorization.
