starting business

I want to move to Mauritius. How easy is it to start business over there, does the law allow anyone to start a small business like business center or foodstuffs business. You may tell me which business sales there for foreigners.

Hi Solly_456,

There are  opportunities to do business in Mauritius but you should comply to the law and requirements.

Here is the the link to the Board of Investment Mauritius webpage, have a look at all the categories :

Hi Solly

There are quite appealing investment opportunities in Mauritius, and it is always advisable to go in a line of activities, which you either are well acquainted with or love.

Setting up a Business Centre or a foodstuffs business will for sure not be accepted by the BOI, as they neither result in much value added, nor create jobs.

In Mauritius, the government is laying much emphasis on quite some sectors, such as Tertiary Education, Renewable Energy, or Medical Services, amongst others.

Best of luck in your endeavours.
