International Aviation Services in Mauritius

Known to Arab navigators,“discovered” by the Portuguese, named by the Dutch after Prince Maurice of Nassau, colonised by the French and thereafter by the British, Mauritius subsequently became an independent nation in 1968 and acceded to a Republic status within the British Commonwealth in 1992.


Early travellers referred to Mauritius as the "Star and Key of the Indian Ocean" since the island was an essential port of call for ships travelling from Europe to India and the Far East. Nowadays, it is its strategic time zone, midway between Europe and the Far East that retains the attention of international businesses (+4 hrs from GMT, -4hrs from Singapore).


Mauritius has a history of banking tradition of almost two centuries. A number of major foreign banks such as Barclays, Hong Kong Shanghai, Deutsche Bank, Crédit Lyonnais, Crédit Suisse First Boston, State Bank of India and BNP operate in Mauritius.

Economic Outlook

Liberal government policies together with an eagerness by local entrepreneurs to develop businesses have resulted in a very successful economic situation.

Over the past decade, Mauritius has consistently achieved high rates of growth and significantly increased its per capita income. It has also considerably reduced unemployment and inflation.

The internationalisation of the Stock Exchange and removal of controls on foreign exchange transactions have boosted activity in the Mauritius International Financial Services Centre, a fast expanding sector of the economy.

Mauritius has adhered to Article 7 of the Articles of Agreement of the International Monetary Fund. This irreversible shift from Article 14 means that Mauritius cannot re-impose restrictions on payments and transfer for international transactions.

In 1999, Mauritius was awarded the "Number one Credit Rating in Africa" by Euromoney magazine.

International Financial Services Sector

From a near absolute dependency on cane sugar, Mauritius has successfully diversified its economy through the development of an efficient Export Processing Zone and the creation of a truly world class product in the Tourism Industry.

The development of an International Services sector with a Freeport and an International Financial Services Centre was a natural addition to an already performant economy. In this context, the Mauritius Offshore Business Activities Act (MOBAA) and the Mauritius Freeport Act were enacted in 1992.

Besides an attractive fiscal package and the proper legal framework to ensure an impeccable reputation for the International Services Sector, Mauritius offers a number of advantages. These include an increasing network of Double Taxation Agreements (DTA), a pool of qualified accountants, lawyers and other professionals, low operating costs and commitment for fast responses.
