Mr. Jacques Belle
Director General of Consular and Diaspora Affairs
The division is made up of two sections:
Consular Affairs and Visa Waivers
The Consular Affairs unit provides assistance to Seychelles’ citizens abroad with support provided by honorary consulates. This section is also responsible for negotiating Visa Waivers Agreements (VWA) with foreign countries in order to eliminate VISA barriers for citizens traveling abroad.
Diaspora Unit is the first ever unit established within the Foreign Affairs responsible to develop means and modes of engagement with the diaspora through facilitation and coordination with local stakeholders and the public. Diaspora has the mandate to support the various sectors and partners involved in building a stronger relationship with the diaspora community for the socio-economic development of the country.
