The consulate history, the relation with the Lebanese Government
The Honorary Consulate for the Republic of Seychelles was established in late 1981. The need for a consulate became apparent following the Seychelles gaining their independence from Britain in 1975, and the necessity to have consular affairs taken over from the British Embassy in Beirut and administered independently, with an emphasis on lending care and attention to the Seychellois community living in Lebanon since many years. This became almost indispensable during the years of civil disturbances in Lebanon from 1981 to 1991 and thereafter.
The Consulate, and the Consul, are active members of the Corps Consulaire au Liban, and maintain good relations with the Lebanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The Seychelles are primarily a touristic country and NO Entry Visa is required for a visit of up to one month, obtainable on arrival, and which can be renewed for a further month. A valid passport, a return air ticket, and sufficient foreing currency for the stay, are all that is required.
A departure tax of USD 40.- is payable at the Airport on departure.
