AML/CFT Activities

Mauritius AML CFT Activities

In October 2021, the FATF announced the removal of Mauritius from the list of high-risk third countries with regards to anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing (AML/CFT).

The country had previously been listed in June 2020.

From June 2019 until November 2021, the EU Global Facility has provided continuous technical assistance through various training and activities to help Mauritian authorities and AML/CFT actors rectify the strategic deficiencies in its national anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing framework to be removed from the list.
