Press release

Travel notification to the People’s Republic of China

October 17, 2013

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Seychelles wishes to inform all Seychellois nationals traveling to the People’s Republic of China (PRC) that they do not require a visa if the duration of their stay does not exceed 30 days and are in possession of a return ticket.

If you wish to stay for a longer period, study in the PRC or work in the territory of the PRC, procedures apply and you are required to obtain a valid visa from the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in Seychelles.

We would also like to stress that Seychellois students currently holding ‘student-visas’, must renew their visas with the competent authority before leaving the PRC if they intend to return.
