Seychelles consists of an archipelago of more than 100 islands in the Indian Ocean off the coast of East Africa. The capital, Victoria, is located on Mahé, the main island of the Seychelles, and many dream of living in the Seychelles. They are full of beaches, coral reefs and nature reserves, as well as rare animals such as giant tortoises.
With less than 100,000 inhabitants, it is the African state with the smallest population. The official languages of Seychelles are: French, English and Seychelles Creole.
The entire island can be defined as a nature reserve. Beautiful unspoiled beaches, impressive coral reefs, forests and stunning landscapes. The richness of vegetation and the absence of pollution make it a paradise.
Temperatures vary only slightly throughout the year and are constantly between 25 and 30°C with relatively high humidity.
People are very helpful and have an extremely relaxed lifestyle. This does not mean that things do not go well, what needs to be done is done, but without haste, with time, “on a human scale” so to speak. Seychellois tend to enjoy life to the fullest; they can start dancing and singing anytime and anywhere.
Since it is such a small place, there are not many activities beyond living on the beach (beautiful) and by the sea (water sports).
The archipelago is far from most places and does not have any shopping centers, so it will not be easy to buy many products. You will certainly have access to what you need but do not expect to have a wide choice.
The level of education is good, with several public and private schools. Although Seychelles is the most developed country in Africa in terms of human rights, as a very small country it is quite difficult to immigrate.
It is a very difficult country to immigrate to unless you have:
- GOP, (work permit): Basically, this means that you have obtained an employment contract in the islands. Your employer must send all documents to the government authorities
- Citizenship, if you have enough money to buy a Seychelles passport
- Marriage, marry a local citizen and you will receive a residence permit
In addition, you can enter Seychelles temporarily without a visa for tourist purposes. However, if you are caught working, you will be deported and will not be allowed to re-enter for several years.
Therefore, considering the strict labor regulations, it is necessary to find a job and obtain a work permit before leaving your home country. Coming to Seychelles hoping to find a job and obtain a work permit while in the country is not feasible.
The only employment opportunities, with few exceptions, are mainly in hospitality and tourism. You should consult the job offers of the international hotel chains or the job offers published on the Internet
