Seychelles Ban Nigerian Passport Holders

Seychelles has reportedly placed a ban on Nigerian passport holders applying for short-term visas or holiday purposes into the country.

A travel content creator, @munafromtravelletters, raised the alarm in a tweet via her Twitter handle on Saturday evening with a screenshot of the rejection email.

In the post alongside the screenshot, she wrote, “It seems Seychelles just placed a ban on Nigerian passport holders. Having a Nigerian passport means you can postpone travel plans until you become Bill Gates, and immigration policies will be like Dey play“.

Seychelles Reportedly Ban Nigerian Passport Holders

This ban comes just six months after Nigeria signed a pact for direct flights between the two countries.

Before the ban, Nigeria had a long-standing visa-free agreement with Seychelles, allowing Nigerian citizens free entry without a visa for 30 days.
