Through its singular history, alternately French and British, Mauritius has preserved a strong European heritage, mixing French and British culture to which must be added Creole and Indian culture.
Mauritian culture, like its sister island, the aptly named Reunion Island, is a melting pot of cultures and a real success of living together.
Although Mauritius was French for a shorter period of time than it was British, 95 years as opposed to 154, the French language remains the usual language on the whole island, to which must be added Mauritian Creole and English.
English is the official and administrative language. The majority of the documents with the various organizations are thus to be filled in English. However, rest assured, if you are not comfortable with English, Mauritians are often trilingual or even polyglot and will always be able to help you.
The climate in Mauritius is a tropical climate which is divided into only 2 seasons: The summer and the austral winter. The summer extends at least from November to May and the austral winter from June to October.
During the summer temperatures rarely exceed 35°c along the coasts. It is necessary to count 2 to 3°c less inland.
During the southern winter, temperatures rarely fall below 20°c in the morning and evening, with days at 25°c along the coast.
As we like to repeat here, the tax system in Mauritius is as mild as its climate. Although Mauritius is not a tax haven, the Republic of Mauritius is far away from the tax hells of Europe, especially that of France.
Taxation is simple in Mauritius, 15% VAT and 15% income tax.
The same income cannot be taxed more than once.
Add to this, that there is no habitation tax (or very small if you live in a big city), no property tax and even less inheritance tax.
And this is only part of the many tax advantages offered to foreigners wishing to reside in Mauritius.
Education is free in Mauritius, but expatriates will prefer a French or British private school. Indeed, Mauritius has several private schools of a high standard, where the uniform of rigour is required. They welcome students from nursery school to high school and are mainly located in the North, West and Centre of the island.
