The Seychelles Electronic Border System (SEBS) is owned by the Government of Seychelles and is the platform for the Seychelles’ border and immigration system, i.e the blue and yellow cards. These paper forms have been fully digitised, and as a result, the previous Travel Authorisation website has been re-launched as SEBS to reflect its purpose.
By digitising the borders and conducting advance security screening Seychelles Authorities will have greater visibility about who is planning to travel to the country, and can mitigate border threats. Pre-travel assessment and screening will also provide individuals, and carriers, with more assurance at an earlier point in their journey of their ability to travel to Seychelles.
Using the Seychelles Electronic Border System, travel into and out of Seychelles is paperless, faster and more convenient. Similar border systems are used by the USA, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand to keep their countries safe and secure.
This is the official website for the Seychelles Travel Authorisation. It is mandatory to use this website or Seychelles e-Border app to submit your application.
