Turkey – FTA

Back to the list of trade agreements

A Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between Mauritius and Turkey was signed on 9 September 2011 in Istanbul. The agreement entered into force on 01 June 2013. It provides duty-free and quota-free access on all industrial products except for a list of 70 clothing items on which duties will be phased down over a period of 4 years.

With respect to agricultural products, the FTA provides preferential access on a list of some 40 products on a tariff quota basis.

The Mauritius-Turkey FTA can be accessed below:

The rules of origin are product-specific and can be one of the following types:

  • Wholly produced
  • Change in tariff heading
  • Percentage rule

To benefit from preferential access under the Mauritius-Turkey FTA, exporters should obtain a Certificate of Origin certifying that the goods meet the Rules of Origin Criteria.


The Certificate of Origin is both issued and approved by the Customs Department of the Mauritius Revenue Authority. The online application for the Certificate of Origin is made through a Freight Forwarder or Customs House Broker via the TradeNet system. More information on the Certificate can be obtained from the Customs Department:
