Mauritius Citizenship by Investment Programme

Plans to introduce a Citizenship by Investment programme in Mauritius are underway. Brief details were revealed in the 2018/19 budget speech by the Prime Minister.

The investor visa programme is expected to be launched later in 2018. It requires a minimum investment of $500,000 to obtain a Mauritius passport or $1 million to obtain citizenship. Details of how a passport will be issued without citizenship are still to be clarified.

Mauritius passport holders already enjoy visa free access to the UK and Schengen zone countries.


High Net Worth Investors for the Mauritius citizenship programme may be attracted by its generous tax regime. Resident companies in Mauritius enjoy significant tax benefits. The full corporation tax rate is 15%, although tax credits applying to global businesses mean an effective rate of just 3%. There is also no capital gains tax in Mauritius and no withholding tax on dividends.
