eGrey Book of the Seychelles



Please keep checking this page for new updates!

This "electronic Grey Book" draws together the most frequently cited legislation in Seychelles in a single, freely accessible resource.   

The eGrey Book contains over 80 Acts (and their associated Statutory Instruments) which can be browsed and searched online, printed, or downloaded as individual ePub or PDF files.  Anyone who wishes to download the whole Book in ePub format may do so using the link below.

Acts in the eGrey Book have been unofficially consolidated to either 1 December 2014 or a later date, as indicated in the header, and are current as at that date.   For legislation fully updated and consolidated to 31 December 2015, see the recently launched Grey Book of Seychelles (2016), which is available by subscription in hard copy and online.

The eGrey Book has been developed by SeyLII in partnership with AfricanLII, a project of the Democratic Governance and Rights Unit, Department of Public Law, University of Cape Town, and with LexUM, Canada. The project was generously funded by the Indigo Trust and the Open Society Foundations Information Programme.

All users of the eGrey Book are advised that the digital versions of legislation accessible through SeyLII, including the eGrey Book and Grey Book, are UNOFFICIAL and provided solely in the interests of increasing access to legal information.  Their currency and accuracy cannot be warranted.  Official versions of Seychelles legislation can only be obtained in hard copy from the Attorney-General’s Chambers, Department of Legal Affairs.
