Words from an expatriate in Mauritius

  • For my first expatriation, I chose to be accompanied.

    I think that it is important to be well informed and well accompanied. This avoids unpleasant surprises, misunderstandings and waste of time.

    SmartTraveller, for me, was a great solution. Not only on the administrative side, but also for everything related to daily life on site: accommodation, regions, schools, telephone cards.

    I found that it made my arrival and installation much easier!

Relocating to Mauritius with your kids

9 June 2023|Comments Off on Relocating to Mauritius with your kids

You've made the decision to relocate to Mauritius with your family! There are still a few things to arrange, especially for the children... But fear not, we've thought of everything!

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

What happens if the contract with the company ends?2023-11-03T11:33:11+01:00

Your Professional Permit will be canceled. You will have 30 days to leave the territory or regularize your situation (permit switch). If you are looking for work, you can obtain a 6-month exemption from the Mauritian authorities allowing you to stay in the country while you find new employment.

Can I find work while I’m already in Mauritius?2023-11-03T11:32:27+01:00

Yes. You will need to be under a valid visa (tourist or other) until the end of your Professional Permit procedures.

How to find a job in Mauritius?2024-03-13T08:44:12+01:00

You can apply through recruitment agencies (, or respond to offers published on LinkedIn.

Can I work for several employers with my Professional Permit?2023-11-03T11:29:47+01:00

No ! 1 Occupation Permit = 1 employer. Your Professional Permit is linked to your Mauritian Employer.

Is a Professional Permit renewable?2023-11-03T11:28:54+01:00

Yes, it is renewable from the moment your employment contract with the company is renewed. The renewal procedure is the same as obtaining a new permit.

Does the Professional Permit allow my family to join me?2023-10-23T20:43:27+02:00

Yes, your family can be attached under a Dependent Visa (spouse, children and parents).
