The best financial planning – Investment Mauritius

With the reopening of the borders of Mauritius to international travel, there has been a large spike in the number of foreign investors seeking investment opportunities in Mauritius. After the passing of the bill in Mauritius as per the 2021 Mauritius Budget speech, the benefits and opportunities presented to expats looking to relocate to or invest in Mauritius has been extremely significant!
The island has been recognized as one of the best destinations for travel. It has also recently been ranked as Africa’s most developed countries. Mauritius is a FinTech and Investment hub, and with the various schemes presented by the Mauritius government, the different investment options presented in Mauritius to foreign investors have increased.
