When it comes to importing and exporting cargo to Mauritius, a certain set of shipping documents are necessary. One of the most important documents would be a Commercial Invoice. As a freight forwarded and customs broker, Cargo to Mauritius can aid in getting the necessary documents in order, which must include descriptive information on the goods you are importing/exporting, value of the goods, gross & net weight, and the country of origin (Australia). Another document that should be presented is the Bill of Lading, which offers proof of the contract between the exporter and the shipping carrier. If you are opting for airfreight, then the Airway Bill should be presented.
