The Seychelles Investment (Economic Activities) Regulations - S.I. 148 of 2020  stipulates the economic activities allowable for non-Seychellois participation subject to certain conditions. 

The S.I. 148 has two main Schedules:

  • The First Schedule consists of economic activities in which a non-Seychellois may invest fully.
  • The Second Schedule consists of economic activities in which a non-Seychellois may invest, to the extent of the financial limit specified in the Schedule.

The Government maintains that certain economic activities are doable and affordable to the Seychellois investors and such activities shall remain reserved for them. The Reserved Economic Activities Policy, April 2020 is to be used alongside the Schedules of S.I. 148 when considering applications by non-Seychellois to invest in economic activities in Seychelles.

Any application for investment in an economic activity not listed in the Reserved Economic Activities Policy 2020 or in the Schedules of the S.I. 148 2020 shall be subject to an Economic Needs Test (ENT). The ENT will evaluate the economic, social and technological benefits of the economic activity and determine whether there is a gap that can be filled by allowing non-Seychellois participation.
