While some countries are trying to deal with the situation with as little damage as possible, others, such as the Seychelles, are reporting excellent results in fighting the virus. Today, the total number of registered cases of coronavirus in the country is 100 and there are no deaths. Thanks to these data, the country decided to open its borders from 1st of August!
Even in times of pandemic, the Seychelles remains a true paradise. But what do you need to know before traveling to the islands?
