The Seychelles Investment (Economic Activities) Regulations 2014 (SI-71) stipulates the economic activities that are reserved for Seychellois and those allowable for foreign participation subject to certain conditions. If an activity does not appear on the list it will be considered by government.

 

The SI-71 is divided into three main schedules.

  • Schedule one includes all the business activities reserved for Seychellois.
  • Schedule two includes activities which a foreigner may be allowed to invest to the extent of the financial limit specified under column (2) of that schedule.
  • Schedule three includes activities that a foreigner may be allowed to invest in subject to an Economic Needs Test (ENT) which evaluates the economic, social and technological benefits of the project and whether there is a gap that can be filled by allowing non- Seychellois participation.
