mauritius bank details

Mauritius payment instructions

Payment details needed for Mauritian money transfers:

  • Name of Beneficiary (and address if you have it)
  • Name of Mauritian Bank (and address if you have it)
  • IBAN (International Bank Account Number) or account number:
  • BIC (Bank Identifier Code) or SWIFT code

The IBAN includes various codes, like your branch and account numbers, and is the standard system for sending cross-border payments.  Mauritian IBANs have 30 characters, starting with 'MU' followed by 28 characters, and can usually be found on your bank statement or other paperwork, along with your BIC or SWIFT code. If you don't have an IBAN, an account number will suffice, but may make the transfer slightly slower.

If you are paying a third party (eg, lawyer, supplier, other individual) you can forward on the invoice or paperwork you have been sent, and the payments team at Currency Index will take care of the rest, without you needing to fill in endless forms.
