Welcome to Seychelles

His Excellency Mr Danny Faure
President of the Republic of Seychelles

Seychelles is well-known as an exclusive holiday destination. Our marketing slogan, “As Pure as it Gets”, is derived from our world-leading efforts to preserve our cherished environment. Seychelles is the place to be for a quiet, relaxed and romantic holiday.

We are making it easier for investors to do business in Seychelles. As we develop each Seychellois is given the opportunity to own a share in business ventures.

We also have stability and peace to offer both investors and visitors.

Victoria, our capital, is the most important tuna port in the Indian Ocean. We operate one of the three biggest fish canning factories in the world.

Being an island nation, we turn to the sea for much of our livelihood. We have started building a shipping industry to include a fleet of double-hulled petroleum tankers for the transportation of fuel worldwide.

The development of our offshore sector, which is one of the fastest growing jurisdictions in the world, is supported by a modern telecommunications system, sound legal structure and efficient team of professionals.

The main difficulties we face are small size, lack of natural resources and isolation. That is why the people of Seychelles can feel confident that through our Commonwealth connections we are stronger. Our solidarity is our strength. The Commonwealth provides a platform to build peace and deliver prosperity to all our peoples.

We are committed to the Commonwealth’s shared values of tolerance, respect, and equality and uphold its fundamental principles of democracy, human rights, the rule of law and sustainable socio-economic development.

Welcome to Seychelles and happy viewing!

The above message was provided by the previous President, His Excellency Mr James A Michel.
