A stimulating island to nurture growth


Situated in the ‘golden triangle’ connecting Asia, Africa and Australia, acknowledged on the international real estate market as a land of valuable opportunities, Mauritius is a place of convergence for secure investments, sound business and serene living.

Why Mauritius


Despite few natural resources, Mauritius is one of the most successful economies in Africa, boasting its highest GDP per capita.


As a result of its political and economic stability, a highly literate, skilled and bilingual work force, excellent infrastructure and Freeport, a sound financial services sector and a light fiscal regime, the island has become an attractive destination for foreign investors.


Mauritius offers investors the valuable financial privilege of:

  • non-double taxation agreements (DTAs) with more than 30 countries;

  • tax-free holidays and tax-free dividends;

  • zero exchange control;

  • only 15% corporate and personal tax rate and

  • free repatriation of capital and profit.


As a result of securing a number of international trade agreements, Mauritius also enjoys preferential access to major markets:

  • European Union – through the Cotonou Agreement;

  • USA – through the Africa Growth & Opportunity Act;

  • Eastern Africa and Southern Africa - through COMESA and SADEC.
