What information do I need from my recipient for bank transfers to Mauritius?

  • Full name. To avoid any delays, the recipient’s name should match the name on their bank statement exactly.
  • Address. We need your recipient’s city.
  • Account details. We need your recipient’s (1) bank name and (2) IBAN (containing 34 characters).
  • Mobile number. We use this to send an SMS notification to your recipient informing them that their funds have been credited.
  • Email (optional) - We use this to send an email to your recipient with details of your transaction. This is particularly useful in case they have issues receiving the SMS notifications.
  • Sending reason. Please indicate whether it is “family or friend support,” “purchase of services,” “property payment,” or “sending funds to self”. 

Please ensure that all your recipient’s details are correct. Once you make the transaction, it is difficult for us to amend or stop the transfer, although we will always try our best to do so.
