The Seychelles reopens international airport

Seychelles International Airport has reopened, the UK’s Foreign Office has confirmed.

There are currently no commercial flights offering travel to or from Seychelles, but inter-island transport has resumed.

Revised timetables and guidelines for passengers have been published for air and ferry transport options.

On 1 June, the same day the airport reopened, the Seychelles eased some of its restrictions in relation to coronavirus on the islands.

Restaurants and shops are now permitted to trade, but social distancing rules remain in place.

Indoor seated public shows; conferences and meetings; bars; casinos; sports competitions (without spectators); gyms and fitness facilities; cinemas; and marine leisure crafts are also now permitted. All organisers of these events must receive permission from the Department of Health in the Seychelles.

Beach activities involving family members from the same household are permitted. However, beach parties are not permitted.

Restrictions are enforceable by law and can change at short notice, th FCO warned, adding that visitors should consult the Department of Health in the country for further information and monitor local media for the latest developments.
