Mauritius exits the FATF list of jurisdictions under increased monitoring as per communication by the Ministry of Financial Services and Good Governance on 21 October 2021.
The released notice of the FATF states that the FATF concluded at its October 2021 Plenary that Mauritius would no longer be subject to increased monitoring by the FATF. This is as a result of the significant progress Mauritius made in improving its AML/CFT regime. Mauritius has strengthened the effectiveness of its AML/CFT regime and addressed related technical deficiencies to meet commitments in its action plan regarding the strategic deficiencies identified by the FATF in February 2020. Mauritius will continue to work with ESAAMLG to improve its AML/CFT system.
