Seychelles Places Ban on Nigerian Passport Holders

Seychelles has recently placed a ban on Nigerian passport holders applying for short-term visas or holiday purposes. This news has caused concern among Nigerian travelers who had plans to visit the island nation.

The ban was brought to light by a travel content creator, munafromtravelletters, who shared a screenshot of the rejection email on social media. The email stated that Nigerian passport holders are currently not being accepted for holiday purposes and advised individuals to contact Seychelles Immigration for more information.


This development has raised questions about the reasons behind the ban and its potential impact on travel between Nigeria and Seychelles. Prior to the ban, Nigeria had a long-standing visa-free agreement with Seychelles, which allowed Nigerian citizens to enter the country without a visa for up to 30 days.

The news of the ban has been met with disappointment by Nigerian travelers, many of whom had been looking forward to visiting Seychelles. The island nation is known for its stunning beaches, crystal-clear waters, and lush tropical scenery, making it a popular destination for tourists from around the world.

It remains to be seen what the future holds for travel between Nigeria and Seychelles. In the meantime, Nigerian travelers are advised to stay updated on the latest developments and seek alternative destinations for their holiday plans.
