Seychelles Bars Nigerians Applying For Short-term Visa



July 10, (THEWILL) – The Republic of Seychelles has placed a travel ban on Nigerian passport holders applying for short-term visas or holiday purposes.

The ban was announced by the Seychelles Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Tourism on its website, where it listed Nigeria among the countries that are not eligible for short-term visas or vacation.

Seychelles confirmed this in a rejection mail it sent to a travel content creator, who shared a screenshot of the mail on Saturday, via Twitter, @munafromtravelletters.

The screenshot reads, “We regret to inform you that your application has been denied, as per immigration regulation, for now, we are not accepting any NIGERIAN passport holder for holiday purposes. Kindly contact http://www.ics.gov.sc/ (Seychelles Immigration) or call 248 4 293 636 for more information”.

The ban comes just six months after Nigeria signed a pact for direct flights between the two countries.

Before the ban, Nigeria had a long-standing visa-free agreement with Seychelles, which allows Nigerian citizens free entry without a visa for 30 days.
