A word from an entrepreneur in Mauritius

    We were suffocating in Paris! We were looking for…

    We were suffocating in Paris. We were looking for a ‘kid-friendly’ destination, with sunshine and, ideally, the sea and a short time difference with France.

    For our first expatriation, Mauritius ticked all the boxes.

    Today it is all positive and we have no regrets about taking the plunge.

    We spoke to Anaïs from SmartTraveller, who recommended that I apply for an Investor Permit to set up a subsidiary of my company in Mauritius.

Vous n’êtes pas les premiers
à vous être posés ces questions.

How many times can I renew my Premium Visa ?2023-10-31T06:52:43+01:00

Nothing is defined today.

At SmartTraveller we have already renewed Premium Visas up to 3 times. We remind you, however, that this remains at the discretion of the Mauritian authorities.

Is the Premium Visa renewable?2023-10-31T06:51:36+01:00

Yes, at the discretion of the Mauritian authorities.

Can I apply for my Premium Visa on site?2023-10-31T06:50:55+01:00

YES ! You can do the Premium Visa directly on site, provided you have a tourist entry visa (stamp on your passport) that is still valid.

Is the Premium Visa a multiple entry visa?2023-10-31T06:48:53+01:00


Do I need to present a return plane ticket for Premium Visa?2024-03-13T08:56:21+01:00

YES ! A return plane ticket valid for more than 180 days after arrival must be submitted at the time of your request to the VisaPremium authorities. To avoid cancellation fees, SmartTraveller recommends Onewayfly.

How long does a Premium Visa last?2024-03-13T08:50:43+01:00

A premium visa has a maximum duration of 1 year. However, the validity period of the visa remains at the discretion of the authorities. The key will be to send your documents to the required standards so that the authorities give you a duration of 1 year.
We recommend speaking with a SmartTraveller agent to learn more about this topic. Make an appointment HERE.
