Application Process

It is in the interest of the applicant who wishes to obtain a reimbursement to submit his/her project at the earliest to the Board of Investment. Applications should be made not later than one month before production starts in Mauritius. The duly filled and signed application form, film details assessment sheet and all relevant supporting documents should be submitted to the Board of Investment in one envelope or e-mail. Detailed information is available in the document ‘Submission Procedures’.

Upon receipt of an application, the BOI conducts a pre-assessment exercise of the project based on the eligibility criteria, following which a Film Rebate Committee (FRC), comprising of members from different government institutions, processes and recommends or rejects the project for the rebate scheme. This will be confirmed by letter within 7 days of the FRC’s meeting, with grounds given if the project is not accepted for the rebate.
