History of Relations

South Africa and Seychelles established formal relations in 1992. Seychelles upgraded its Honorary Consulate in Johannesburg to a full Consulate-General in August 1999 while also appointing a resident High Commissioner who presented his credentials on 03 March 2000 as Seychelles first residential High Commissioner in South Africa.

However, following the introduction of a Macro Economic Reform Programme in Seychelles and the need to cut back on foreign exchange expenditure, the Embassy of the Republic of Seychelles in South Africa will cease all operations by 1 October 2003.
