SMS celebrates six months of Covid testing in Seychelles |23 November 2021

Seychelles Medical Services celebrated its first six months providing Covid-19 testing services in Seychelles and holds the title as the largest laboratory in the country and in the Indian Ocean region.  

SMS as it is fondly known is a favourite not just by tourists visiting the islands but also by the locals as well due to the unparalleled level of service and the fact that it has more locations in Seychelles than all other clinics combined and even operates on a 24/7 basis.

SMS has the only state-of-the-art laboratory in Seychelles with the latest testing equipment with certified testing centres on Mahe, Praslin, La Digue and Silhouette islands with tests being performed by a dedicated team of over 75 Seychellois and expat staff. 

SMS has saved hundreds of tourists from missing their flights by having the only testing centre at the Seychelles International Airport. Guests who did not have the correct travel documentation have used the company’s fast track or emergency services with results being emailed to them in as little as two hours enabling them to board their flights. 

Seychelles Medical chief executive Justin Etzin said: “We are humbled by the response we have had from everyone in Seychelles and so happy we have managed to nearly halve the price of testing from when we started six months ago. We have locations on all major islands in Seychelles and provide a service that is unparalleled.”

SMS has incredible “Time to fly” and “Back in Seychelles” packages available to Seychellois and gainful occupational permit (GOP) holders. For just R500 for a rapid antigen or R1,500 for PCR, guests can receive their results in just eight hours or choose from a special gift of a free antibody test or rapid antigen available in just 15 minutes.

Mr Etzin said “by booking for the service online with us we offer the cheapest prices in Seychelles and you can come to any of our clinics from 8am to 8pm seven days a week including public holidays. We are even open on Christmas and New Year’s Day. For those who prefer to do the test late at night we are open 24/7 at the airport.”

Clients who book online receive up to 20% discount from the price they would have paid if they were to come to their clinic directly. It’s therefore quicker, cheaper and faster to always book online. Not only does Seychelles Medical have the best prices in Seychelles but it also have a price match guarantee that should you find a cheaper price for the same service it will match the price you have been offered with an upgraded service.
