With the exception of Seychellois citizens admission into the Republic of Seychelles will also be refused to any national if they have visited tGuinea (Conakry) within 28 days prior to travelling to Seychelles. All Seychellois citizens require the expressed permission of the Public Health Commissioner, to travel to Guinea (Conakry).

 These measures also apply to passengers and crew of any ship that visits any port in the affected countries, namely Guinea Conakry.
