Mauritius exits the European Union list of high-risk third countries

Mauritius

We are delighted to share that the European Commission announced that Mauritius has been removed from the High-Risk Third Countries list of the European Union.

The Commission’s analysis concluded that Mauritius does not have strategic deficiencies in its AML/CFT regime and has successfully addressed strategic deficiencies that the FATF identified and the additional benchmarks or preliminary concerns set by the Commission.

This announcement follows the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) removal of Mauritius from its grey list of countries under increased monitoring on 21 October 2021.

This development consolidates the position of Mauritius as an International Financial Centre of substance and repute with robust AML/CFT regime.
