Seychelles has recently implemented a visa ban for Nigerian passport holders who wish to visit the country for short-term visas or holiday purposes.
This news was brought to light by a travel content creator on Twitter, who shared a screenshot of the rejection email.
The email stated that Seychelles is currently not accepting any Nigerian passport holders for holiday purposes, citing immigration regulations.
This ban comes as a surprise, as Nigeria had previously enjoyed a visa-free agreement with Seychelles, allowing Nigerian citizens to enter the country without a visa for up to 30 days.
It is worth noting that this ban comes just six months after Nigeria and Seychelles signed a pact for direct flights between the two countries.
