We investigate the possibility of existing a class of compact charged spheres made of a charged perfect fluid in the framework of Einstein–Gauss–Bonnet theory in five-dimensional spacetime (5D EGB). In order to study spherically symmetric compact stars in EGB gravity, we prefer to apply a systematic and direct approach to decoupling gravitational sources via the minimal geometric deformation approach (MGD), which allows us to prove that the fluid must be anisotropic. In fact, we specify a well-known Krori–Barua spacetime in the MGD approach that helps us to determine the decoupling sector completely. Indeed, by using this approach, we found an exact and physically acceptable solution which satisfies all the elementary criteria of physical acceptability for a stellar solution via mimic approach. Finally, we show that the compactness factor in the presence of gravitational decoupling satisfies the Buchdahal limit under 5D EGB gravity.
