Mauritius flag Mauritius: Investing in Mauritius

Investment framework and opportunities in Mauritius

Procedures Relative to Foreign Investment

Acquisition of Holdings
In general, foreign investors are treated in the same way as Mauritian citizens and can hold 100% of a company's shares. Nevertheless, foreign involvement is restricted in some sectors, including television broadcasting, sugar production, newspaper and magazine publishing, as well as certain operations in the tourism sector.
Furthermore, in an effort to attract high-net-worth non-citizens, the government has established a Property Development Scheme (PDS) that allows buyers of a residential unit valued over USD 375,000 in certain projects to apply for a residence permit in Mauritius. The property can be leased or rented out by the owner.
Obligation to Declare
All businesses must register with the Corporate and Business Registration Department (CBRD). Thanks to the National Electronic Licensing System (NELS) the submission of business licensing can be done electronically.
In the construction sector, foreign consultants or contractors are required to register with the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB).
Competent Organisation For the Declaration
