Visiting Seychelles now is difficult for Nigerians as the nation has allegedly imposed a ban on Nigerian passport holders.
Those most affected are people applying for short-term visas or holiday purposes.
This position that the small nation has taking is drawing diverse views from internet users.
A travel content creator raised the alarm on Saturday evening, July 8, 2023, on Twitter after receiving a rejection email.
It seems Seychelles just placed a ban on Nigerian passport holders. The thing with having a Nigerian passport is you can be postponing travel plans until you become Bill Gates and immigration policies will be like “ Dey play” pic.twitter.com/UroivUEjGM

Here is what the traveller said.
Seychelles has banned Nigerians.
Nigeria has fallen from grace and is now groveling in a cesspit.
Seychelles of all countries?! This is the height.

Seychelles has seemingly placed a ban on Nigerian passport holders from visiting on holiday purposes.
Blanket bans on entire countries isn’t only lazy, it is discriminatory and an expression of xenophobia.
