Seychelles relaxes COVID-19 restrictions for superyacht charters

By Nina Done   5 December 2022

With effect from 1 December, Seychelles' Ministry of Health have announced the country will resume pre-covid protocols, meaning travelers are no longer required to be vaccinated or present a negative COVID-19 test to enter, heralding welcome news for superyachts wishing to cruise these Indian Ocean waters.

The return to normal operations follows a relaxation to the strict COVID rules in March 2022, alongside Maldives and Mauritius, removing the requirement for a PCR test result for vaccinated travelers.
