For those wishing to settle in Mauritius, there are various types of residence permits at your disposal and non-nationals are also eligible to buy property in Mauritius under prescribed conditions.
An occupation permit allows a non-Mauritian national to live and work in Mauritius. Consisting of a work and residence permit, applications are made through the Board of Investment (“BOI”) to the Passport and Immigration Office. In order to apply, the applicant must register with the BOI and this is done at the same time when an application is being submitted.
When the application is submitted, the applicant must be physically present and come in person to the BOI. Therefore, in order to be able to enter Mauritius, a business or tourist visa might first be required. To process and obtain a permit takes around 7-14 days.
An occupation permit may be granted into 3 categories only, namely: Investor; Professional; and Self-employed.
Investor: The business activity should generate a turnover exceeding MUR4 million annually with an initial investment of US$100,000 per investor or its equivalent in a freely convertible foreign currency.
In cases where there are more than one investor, the turnover criteria applies in respect of each applicant (i.e. MUR8 million for two applicants, MUR12 million for three applicants, and so on)
Professional: Basic salary should exceed MUR45,000 monthly. However, the basic salary for the category of Professional in the ICT Sector should exceed MUR30,000 monthly.
Self Employed: Income from the business activity should exceed MUR600,000 annually with an initial investment of US$ 35,000 or its equivalent in freely convertible foreign currency.
Non-Mauritian nationals may purchase residential property in Mauritius under special schemes known as the Integrated Resort Scheme (IRS) and the Real Estate Scheme (RES) respectively. Properties under the IRS are offered for sale at a minimum legal price of US$500,000 and the acquirer of an IRS property is automatically granted a residence permit.
Comparatively, a residential property bought within a RES development does not have to comply with a minimum price. However, it is important to note that acquiring a property under the RES does not confer permanent residency. Acquirers of a residence under the RES may wish to apply for residency under any of the four existing conditions: as an investor, as a professional, as a self-employed, or as a retired non-citizen.
