“I’ve been asked why SMS have such a large Lab in Seychelles that has the capacity to be able to test the whole of Seychelles in just a few days.  The answer is simple, Seychelles is a five star destination and deserves to have a world class testing facility that matches this reputation.

Every visitor arriving in Seychelles needs the confidence to know that should they need a fit to fly certificate for their onward travels that they can get one easily at their hotel or any of Seychelles Medical clinics across the Seychelles and at the Airport in under 2 hours if required.  It is imperative that the results are accurate and SMS are delighted that The College of American Pathologists has recognized the integrity of Seychelles Medical and we become the only laboratory in Seychelles to have such recognition”
