    Seychelles ranks 42nd in the Index for criminality, with fairly low scores across almost all criminal markets and criminal actors.

    The heroin trade and fauna crimes are the only two illicit markets reported as being of significant concern, scoring 6.5 and 6, respectively. While other markets are somewhat established, and reported to be growing, none score above 4, suggesting they have at most a moderately negative influence on society. The most active types of criminal actors in Seychelles are foreign actors and criminal networks involved in human trafficking, drug smuggling and wildlife poaching. Nevertheless, levels of organised crime overall are low in Seychelles and criminal actors are not judged to be particularly influential. Seychelles performs well on resilience, ranking 11th in Africa, with most indicators scoring between 5.5 and 7, suggesting the country is sufficiently effective in the combating organised crime. Seychelles’ laws related to organised crime, the success of its law enforcement capacity and organised crime prevention activities all contribute to these good scores. Nevertheless, no area scores above 7, and experts highlight areas for improvement, such as in territorial integrity, economic regulatory environment and anti-money laundering.
