Mauritius exits the FATF list of jurisdictions under increased monitoring (The List)

21 October 2021

At its October 2021 Plenary, the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) has decided to remove Mauritius from its list of jurisdictions under increased monitoring.

The FATF has welcomed the significant progress made by Mauritius in further improving its AML/CFT regime, and in addressing related technical deficiencies to meet the commitments in its action plan regarding the strategic deficiencies identified by the FATF in February 2020.

This is a major development for Mauritius in its sustained fight against money laundering, terrorist financing and proliferation financing. It further enhances confidence and trust in our banking sector and the jurisdiction as an international financial centre.

The Bank of Mauritius remains committed to continuously engage with all stakeholders to ensure the sustainability and effectiveness of the AML/CFT system.
