Words from a real estate investor

  • We had been dreaming about it for a long time and we took our decision on a whim!

    My wife and I have been coming to Mauritius regularly for about twenty years to play golf. We dreamed of settling in this idyllic place and enjoying the sweetness of life. COVID gave us a shock and we decided to change our lives. Everything happened really fast.

    We asked Sophie, the real estate expert. She offered us several properties and we signed for a penthouse in Azuri. We enjoy a magnificent view of the lagoon and the golf course at the foot of the complex. Happiness!

Tax residency in Mauritius

19 April 2023|Comments Off on Tax residency in Mauritius

If you are relocating to our island, you will probably become eligible for a tax residency in Mauritius. What does it mean? Find out more other here!

You’re not the first people
to ask yourselves 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?2024-06-04T11:48:56+02:00

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:

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
