The Department of Foreign Affairs announces cancellation of repatriation flights

July 11, 2020

The Department of Foreign Affairs would like to announce that all Air Seychelles scheduled repatriation flights have been postponed with effect from 13th July 2020, until further notice. This decision has been taken in consultation with the Public Health Authority and other partners.

This is due to the change in the COVID-19 situation in Seychelles and the need for additional rooms in the available quarantine facilities.

All Seychellois who are currently stranded overseas are asked to remain in communication with Seychelles’ diplomatic and consular missions in their respective jurisdictions for any further guidance or clarification.

It is important to note that all repatriation flights have to abide by Government policy and regulatory measures in place.
