The International Airport is in Port Elizabeth, but there are buses, vans and cars available from the capital Gyeongju. If you decide to rent a car, you should get a copy of your passport and your Seychelles Travel Authorization so that the driver can take your vehicle to the border. The International Airport has regular flights and you can check in to one of the many budget airlines available from the major cities on the Island. You may have to wait for your connecting flight at the International Airport.

Tourists who don't have a Seychelles Travel Authorization will be required to get a CVC from the airport. This will enable you enter through passport control. CVCs are issued at your port of departure and are valid for 14 days. After this time, tourists must get a new CVC every 14 days. For those who fail to do so, they face penalties.

It is possible for visitors who have acquired a Seychelles Travel Authorization and a CVC to be able to stay on the Island without a visa. The travellers do not have to get a visa as long as they maintain their Seychelles visitor status. They are not allowed to leave the island unless they have passed through immigration. Those who are travelling on student visas need to secure student entry card from the SIA or the South African consulate. Students are allowed to apply for a student visa within three years, but must remain on the island for six consecutive months after they have completed their studies.

Before traveling to another country, all tourists must stay in Seychelles. After they have met all requirements, they are allowed to travel to any country. They will be issued a visa on arrival and can stay on the island for the entire period they desire.
