FSA Enhanced measured vis‐à‐vis the COVID‐19 Situation – Temporary Closure of FSA Offices

In light of the evolving situation concerning the COVID‐19 pandemic in the Seychelles and considering the health and wellbeing of the its staff, licensees, stakeholders and their families as a whole, the Financial Services Authority (“FSA”) has deemed it necessary to adopt certain strengthened measures vis‐à‐vis its day to day operations until further notice.

In accordance with new measures put in place by the Department of Health, in an effort to restrict access and movement of the persons to and from the FSA’s offices, the FSA offices at Bois de Rose and Providence will remain closed as of Thursday 9, 2020 until further notice. The FSA will advise as soon as possible with respect to modified work practices such as document drop‐off, delivery and a revised opening hours’ timetable.

The FSA strongly recommends that at this juncture all licensees and stakeholders similarly adopt enhanced/ escalated measures in line with recommendations recently issues by the Department of Health with respect to the restriction of the movement of people and social distancing. In this regard we reiterate recommendations made in past FSA communications that licensees make use of electronic resources in communications to the FSA and other bodies so as to help in the containment of the present situation.

Be advised that the FSA will be providing updates via its website and email as and when these are possible.
