Getting In and Around
A passport and proof of sufficient funds are needed for entering Seychelles. If you plan to stay for longer than a month, you’ll need a visa.
Most major airlines fly to and from Seychelles. Its 115 islands make it a big tourist attraction; island hopping is not only extremely popular but also highly recommended for those who wish to see all that Seychelles has to offer. Coordinate with your hotel or with a travel agency about boat trips and flights between the various islands. Inter-island travel is accomplished mainly via Air Seychelles, Helicopter Seychelles (for chartered and scenic flights), and sea ferries. On the islands, car rentals and efficient bus and taxi services are available.
Seychelles has efficient communications networks. High-speed Internet is available, as are several GSM networks. SIM cards may be bought at a low cost.
Safety and Security
Seychelles experiences low levels of crime; in 2008 it ranked second on the Ibrahim Index as one of Africa’s safest countries. Still, it is advisable not to swim or go to the beach alone at night; keep your possessions in a safe, and do not walk around with large sums of money in your pocket.
