Security in Seychelles

La navigation de plaisance est formellement déconseillée dans l’ensemble de la zone économique exclusive (ZEE) seychelloise. Mais pour ce qui est de la sécurité intérieure sur l’île, les Seychelles sont plutôt des îles très sûres, avec cependant quelques cas de vols visant des touristes. Prenez donc vos précautions.

Health insurance and repatriation in Seychelles

Why take international health insurance when travelling or living in Seychelles? Simply because health spending quickly reaches very high amounts abroad. In addition, the repatriation guarantee is an essential criterion. In the event of a serious accident it is sometimes necessary to carry out a medicalized repatriation to the nearest medical centre or to the country of residence. Depending on where you are at the time of the accident, and depending on the medical prognosis, it may be necessary to charter a helicopter or a medicalized aircraft.

Mondassur supports you in your choice of international health insurance by helping you compare the different offers on the market. Depending on your profile, we will be able to offer you different travel, international student and expatriate insurance packages.
