Passports

Ordinary Passport

Matters related to the Seychelles ordinary passport and its renewal are dealt with by the Ministry of Internal Affairs – Immigration and Civil Status Department.

Following the introduction of biometric passports in November 2022, passport applicants in Seychelles are required to apply in person at the Passport Office in Victoria. Completing an application form is no longer necessary. 

Seychellois citizens overseas also have the option to apply and enrol for their passports at the Embassy of Seychelles in Paris, the Embassy of Seychelles in Abu Dhabi, and the Seychelles High Commission in London.  To access this facility, applicants must first submit an e-verification via email from Immigration Seychelles before contacting the respecting Seychelles Embassy of High Commission for an appointment.

Further information on the ordinary passport including application from overseas can be accessed on the Immigration and Civil Status website.
