Trade Section

The Trade Section is one of the key operational sections with the responsibility of processing licences of all business licensable activities that fall under the Licenses Act 2010.

It is a section which also assists the general public (Seychellois and non-Seychellois) who wants to start a Business or invest in the country. They are provided with the necessary information and guidelines on how to obtain a license. Where necessary, they are referred to the other bodies concerned to facilitate compliance with pre-licensing procedures.

The section ensures that all the requirements for granting of licenses have been met prior to the approval of new licences and renewal of existing licences by the CEO or Deputy CEO.

This section has 7 staffs, including on Praslin and La Digue as well.
