Seychelloise nationals do not require a tourist visa to travel the Schengen Area by air, land, or sea for up to 90 days. The Seychelles is one of the nations that have been granted visa-free entry to all Schengen countries.

Online registration for an ETIAS authorization will be required. The ETIAS visa waiver will go into effect in late 2023.

A valid ETIAS for Seychellois nationals is a multiple entry travel authorization that permits the holder to enter the Schengen zone for tourist, business, transit, or medical treatment.

ETIAS from the Seychelles allows for a cumulative stay of 90 days every 180 days. It is good for three years from the date of approval.

An authorised ETIAS for Seychelles nationals allows the holder to travel to Schengen Area nations and territories for business, transit, tourism, and medical treatment. Seychelles passport holders are unable to work in Europe under an ETIAS visa waiver.

Working in Europe with an ETIAS from Seychelles would violate the terms of the electronic visa waiver and might result in the ETIAS being revoked.

Seychelloise people who intend to work in Europe must apply for a work permit or a work visa for each Schengen country they plan to visit. It is required to apply in person at the applicable Schengen state’s embassy or consulate.

No, Seychellois nationals cannot study in Europe under the ETIAS visa waiver programme. A valid ETIAS issued by the Seychelles permits the holder to enter the Schengen Area for business, travel, tourism, or medical treatment.

To study at a university or participate in a training programme in Europe, the traveller must apply for the appropriate study permit or national visa from an embassy or consulate of the Schengen country they plan to visit.

A study visa differs from an ETIAS in that it only allows the bearer to travel to and study in one Schengen state.
