The Honorary Consul

Consul Dr. Nikolaus Fuchs



Germany strongly supported the country’s democratization process by seconding a constitutional expert and providing technical assistance for elections at the beginning of the 1990s, the only Western country to do so.

German tourists, as well as business companies active in the field of renewable energy, form the backbone of direct economic exchange between Germany and the Seychelles. Accounting for some 30 per cent of gross domestic product, tourism remains the principal economic sector and creates the most jobs, along with the fishing industry. In 2014 233,000 tourists visited the Seychelles, setting a new record. Some 33,000 Germans visited the country in 2014, making them the largest group of foreign visitors and – along with French, Italian and Russian tourists – one of the country’s principal sources of foreign currency. At Seychelles Polytechnic, there are some 30 students learning German as a foreign language. Students at the Seychelles Hospitality and Tourism Training Centre have also enrolled in German courses.

Every year in April, the Carnival International de Victoria, featuring processions and ship parades, is held in the country’s capital. The event attracts numerous tourists and media representatives, among them a number from Germany. A delegation from Düsseldorf has also been among the participants in recent years. In addition to the Seychelles's consulate in Berlin, the Seychelles has four other representations in Germany. These representations include consulates in Frankfurt am Main, Hamburg, Kiel, and Munich.
