The passport of the island country of Mauritius ranks 31st in the entire world, making it the 2nd most valuable passport in Africa. Holders of the passport have unrestricted visa-free travel to 145 destinations worldwide, more than two-thirds of the world. In 2018, the Prime Minister of Mauritius announced that foreigners now have the chance to obtain Mauritian citizenship in exchange for a non-refundable contribution of $1m (£757,400) to the national sovereign wealth fund, with the applicants’ spouses and dependents also eligible with an additional contribution of $100,000 per family member.
