Seychelles UNGA delegation advancing opportunities for Seychellois with new agreements

Seychelles UNGA delegation advancing opportunities for Seychellois with new agreements ( The Seychelles government has signed two new visa exemption agreements with both the Sri Lankan government and that of Mozambique during ceremonies held in the margins of the United Nations General Assembly in New York last week.

The agreements were signed by the Minister for Foreign Affairs, with his counterpart, Mr. Oldemiro Baloi, Minister for Foreign Affairs and Cooperation of Mozambique, and Mr. Gamini Lakshman Peiris, the Sri Lankan Minister for External Affairs.

Minister Adam said that the two agreements will further promote the friendly relations, trade, and economic development between Seychelles and Mozambique, as well between Seychelles and Sri Lanka.

“These visa waivers are another win for Seychellois travelers, particularly for Seychellois business people, as there are countless trade opportunities within these two regional neighbors," said the Minister.

“During President Michel's recent state visit to Sri Lanka, I had the opportunity to explore first-hand some of these opportunities, particular in the boating and fishing sector, that I think will be hugely beneficial for local entrepreneurs," he added.

Once the internal formalities are completed by all parties concerned, the citizens of Seychelles may enter and stay without a visa in Mozambique and Sri Lanka for a period not exceeding 30 days.

Following the visa signings, the Seychelles Foreign Minister also held a bilateral meeting with Mrs. Antonella Mularoni, the Minister for Foreign Affairs of the Republic of San Marino, which concluded with the signing of a Double Taxation Avoidance Agreement on behalf of their respective countries.

Minister Adam was accompanied in these events by Ambassador Marie-Louis Potter, and Selby Pillay, Principal Counselor at the Seychelles Mission to the UN.

These agreements will come into force once all internal procedures are complete. Travelers are advised to please check with their airlines or with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for verification before travel.
