Words from a digital nomad

  • Nolwenn is from France and chose to settle down in Mauritius.

    My selection criteria were the sun, Wifi (non-negotiable when you work as a digital nomad), and simplicity.

    Life here is sweet and easy. During the day, I am fully engaged in my work, so I needed to have this calm and relaxing side too. There are no worries, you can just enjoy the present moment. Living and working in Mauritius is really great!

You are not the first
to have asked yourself these questions.

Does purchasing a property in Mauritius give me authorization to reside and work there?2023-12-10T12:42:39+01:00

Yes, if and only IF the purchase price is more than $375,000 (in programs accessible to foreigners). This residence permit also saves you from having to apply for a work permit if you wish to work in Mauritius.

What real estate programs are accessible to foreigners?2023-12-10T12:43:31+01:00

In order to preserve Mauritian territory, foreigners can acquire a residential property developed under the Integrated Resort Scheme (IRS), the Real Estate Scheme (RES), the Property Development Scheme (PDS) or the Smart City Scheme (SCS) or another R+2 or an apartment upstairs.
An R+2 is accessible to foreigners from $175,000.

A purchase of over $375,000 automatically gives you access to the Mauritian residence permit.

Can I buy anywhere on the island?2023-12-10T12:43:59+01:00

Only in programs reserved for foreigners.

How to find real estate open to foreigners?2023-11-03T12:04:54+01:00

Through various real estate agencies. The island being small, we recommend working under mandate with a single real estate agency. This way, they will do everything to find the right thing for you!

We can put you in touch with our trusted partner agency. Do not hesitate to fill out this form to explain your search to us: http://smarttraveller92969.ac-page.com/achat-immobilier

Can I buy real estate for my business outside the program reserved for foreigners?2023-12-10T12:45:24+01:00

No. If you are a foreigner and a shareholder of the same company, then the ultimate beneficiary remains a foreigner. So the purchase must be part of the programs reserved for foreigners.

Can I set up an SCI in Mauritius?2023-12-10T12:45:54+01:00

Yes, you can set up an SCI.
For more information, we recommend that you speak with a tax specialist. Do not hesitate to contact our tax expert partner https://calendly.com/smarttraveller/support-fiscalite-ile-maurice

As a shareholder of my Mauritian company, do I have to reside in Mauritius?2023-11-03T11:49:20+01:00

No, it is not necessary. However, you must appoint a local or foreign director with a residence permit.

What is the cost of renting an office?2023-11-03T11:48:37+01:00

Approximately: (market as of 10/31/2023)

  • Unfurnished office: Rs 400 – Rs 600 (€10) / M² rental
  • Furnished office: Rs 600 – Rs 900 (€20) / M² rental
  • Unfurnished office-house: Rs 200 – Rs 300 (€6) / M² rental
