Forex license in Seychelles.


According to Seychelles Islands Securities Act 2007 the operating forex activity provided with or in Seychelles is determined as activity that has to be licensed and regulated by Seychelles Financial Services Authority (www.fsaseychelles.sc) according to this act and other legislative instruments.

Individuals can perform this type of activity only on the basis of the relevant funds dealer license. In this case, if company is registered in Seychelles, but the actual management of the company and its activities are conducted outside the territory of Seychelles, the obtaining of funds dealer license is not required.
