Seychelles islands saw an increase of 120% increase in tourist arrivals from India in the first quarter of 2015 compared to first quarter of 2014.
The tourism board’s India office started operations around two years back. The surge in tourist arrivals from India can be attributed to the India office’s continuous intelligent and innovative marketing tactics, educating and handholding the travel trade and significant proactive PR activities. In addition, commencement of direct flights between the two nations, year-long tourist season and visa on arrival and gratis have been the other key factors which have boosted the tourist arrivals from India.
