Do I need a passport for local flights in Seychelles?
No, you don't need a passport to fly locally within Seychelles. If you're an international traveller, you'll need a passport to enter the country but won't be required to show your passport when flying between islands.
Airlines might require you to have some form of ID, though. Therefore, it's important that you carry some form of an in-date government-issued photo ID.
How early do I need to arrive for domestic flights in Seychelles?
Airport check-in closes around 45 minutes before scheduled flight departure time, so it's important to arrive well in advance of this if you haven't checked in online and need to check-in at the airport. If you're checking in at the airport, we recommend arriving 90 minutes before scheduled flight departure time.
If you have checked-in online, you can arrive at the airport a little later. The boarding gate closes around 20 minutes before scheduled flight departure time so it's important that you arrive at the gate in advanced of this. If you've checked in online, we recommend arriving at the airport between 90—60 minutes before scheduled flight departure time.
