The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) and Agency for National Resource Development (ANHRD) would like to confirm that the two Seychellois students in Wuhan, the epicenter of the Novel Coronavirus, have been safely transferred to France, with the kind assistance of the French authorities, on Sunday 2 February 2020, along with other European nationals.
The students will remain in a confinement centre in France for fourteen days, as part of the health requirements, before travelling to Seychelles. Necessary arrangements will be made for their safe return to Seychelles soon.
The coordinating role of the DFA, with the assistance of Ministry of Education and Human Resource Development, ANHRD and Ministry of Health, have made this ‘operation’ possible for the students. All parties involved appreciate the support and patience of the parents throughout this difficult process.
The Seychelles government is truly grateful for the kind assistance of the French authorities for the smooth and safe transfer of the students.
The Seychelles government is also grateful to the Chinese authorities in facilitating the safe movement of the students.
