Application for a residence permit in Mauritius

Your project is our concern

Among the founders of Visa Mauritius, we are two expatriates who have lived through the long process of the residence permit between the moment when the project is matured and the moment when it becomes a reality. This is our experience that we put at your service.

Becoming a Permanent Resident in Mauritius

There are mainly 3 ways to obtain permanent residence. You apply for a residence permit to invest in Mauritius, to retire or to purchase a property. The first two ways are detailed in the boxes below.

Buy a property

Real estate investment in Mauritius under the RES or PDS regime allows you to obtain fiscal residence as soon as you acquire the property. Buying a villa in Mauritius or an apartment in a luxury residence remains the solution chosen by many retired people. By owning a villa, you are no longer subject to the obligation to have a monthly income of 2500 USD required by the EDB for pensioner’s permits.

It is important to note that the residence permit is attached to your property. If you sell your property, you are no longer eligible for tax residence in Mauritius.

However, obtaining the residence permit is only possible for properties with a minimum value of US$ 500, 000.

Occupation permit investor

The investor permit is the most common and most granted by the Economic Development Board (formerly BOI). It requires an investment of USD 100,000 and an annual turnover of Rs 4,000,000 per year.

Occupation Permit Self-Employed

The self-employed permit is a permit issued to a liberal profession, consultant or freelancer. It requires a deposit of USD 35,000 in a Mauritian bank account, a turnover of Rs 600,000 for the first 2 years and Rs 1,200,000 for the third year.

Occupation Permit Retired

The retired permit is reserved for foreign nationals who are at least 50 years of age and can prove a monthly income of at least USD 2,500 per month up to an amount equivalent to at least USD 30,000 per year.
