Frequently Asked Questions

As a foreigner, you can buy as an individual, through a company or a trust. One can use a foreign holding vehicle above such a local entity. The best way to buy would depend on your needs and circumstances.
An Occupation Permit (Professional, Self-employed, Investor) and a Residence Permit (Retired Non-Citizen) can take anywhere between 4 to 6 weeks. The Premium Visa, which lasts up to a year, has been taking 2-3 months in recent times.
Foreigners living both in and outside of Mauritius are eligible for a home loan, of up to 70% of the property value. The maximum LTV and the interest rates amount depend on the bank and your personal circumstances. The local entity set up can also hold the loan.
The North and the West are the 2 most popular regions for foreigners. Choosing the best place to live would depend on your lifestyle, budget, and preferences. The North is more developed, with more schools, motorway connections, medical facilities, a vibrant nightlife, and modern amenities, while the West is quieter, more beautiful, and more focused on outdoor activities and nature.
Property can be a profitable investment for foreigners whether they are seeking high rental yields or capital appreciation. For even higher rental yields, commercial real estate can be very profitable. As a property owner, you can target long-term expat tenancies and short-term holiday makers to rent out your property. To make the best out of your property investment, it is recommended to get local property advice and a reliable property agent with access to the best developments.
Mauritius offers several options for both English and French private international schools. There is a lot of choice for primary schools, especially in the North but there tend to be waiting lists for the best international secondary schools.
A non-resident foreigner can open a personal bank account in Mauritius through private banking. One does not have to be in Mauritius to set this up. If, however, you are a permit holder and move to Mauritius, it is much simpler to open a regular bank account.
The first consideration when moving to Mauritius is the finances/ job. Mauritius is not cheap and so whether you have a business of your own, work remotely or are already retired, the cost and financial viability must be assessed. Secondly, you will need to be guided on the type of permit or visa that you require considering your business, family, tax situation, urgency, and age. The third is the children if they are school age. Many of the schools have long-waiting lists and once you know that Mauritius is for you, get on those waiting lists! Lastly, pet relocation takes time and needs to be organised very carefully as the vaccinations must be in a certain order, neither too early nor too late.
