Mauritius is no longer subject to increased monitoring by the FATF

Mauritius is no longer subject to increased monitoring by the FATF

The Financial Action Task Force (FATF) at its October 2021 plenary session concluded that Mauritius would no longer be subject to increased monitoring by the FATF.

The European Commission previously confirmed that removal of Mauritius from the FATF list of jurisdictions under increased monitoring will also lead to the “delisting” of Mauritius from the European Union list of high-risk third countries for AML/CFT purposes.

Mauritius addressed deficiencies identified by the FATF ahead of the agreed timeline of January 2022.

Mauritius is also on the OECD “white list” for uncooperative tax jurisdictions following changes made to its tax regime in 2018.
