Seychelles’location outside the cyclone belt, in a time zone whose working hours overlap with those of major financial centers, its excellent sea and air connections with Europe, USA, Asia and Africa make it an excellent place to conduct business.

An efficient telecommunications system together with other advantages such as the extensive facilities available at its harbor, port Victoria, and a well-developed infrastructure with attractive investment incentives, offer the ideal business environment to investors.

In order to fully capitalize on the above, the Seychelles investment bureau (sib) was established in July 2004, as the first point of contact for all matters relating to investment and business in Seychelles.

Capitalizing on the work of its predecessor, sib, and sib’s objectives are to promote Seychelles as the ultimate environment for business, foster an investor-friendly culture and assist investors to establish and expand their respective enterprises.

2) Providing facilitation services to investors and acting as the focal point of contact amongst local and foreign entrepreneurs and all government/private organizations
3) Expediting the processing of investment proposals in an efficient manner for the consideration of government
4) Conducting research and make recommendations on investment related matters.
