The Republic of Mauritius decided, in November 2020, to launch a teleworking visa called Visa Premium. The government aims to revive tourism in the archipelago following the health crisis. This residence permit provides the opportunity to stay for 1 year and combine work and discovery of the islands.

Made up of an archipelago comprising 6 islands, the Republic of Mauritius is located to the east of Madagascar. Port-Louis, the country's capital and largest city, is located on the largest island in the archipelago, Mauritius. The local currency is the Mauritian Rupee (MUR​) and is equal to 0.022 US Dollars.

The climate is tropical.

What to do on the islands?

Despite its small size, you won't find anything to be bored in Mauritius. Stroll on the beach of Flic en Flac and rub shoulders with the local population (Mauritius). Take a hike: go to the highest point of Pouce Mountain to admire a panorama of the island. Enjoy a barbecue on Ile aux Cerfs. Attend a mass in the Cap Malheureux church. Observe real Mauritian life in Port-Louis. Discover the culinary route of the tea route.

Food is varied in Mauritius. The dishes are based on fish, meat, vegetables, but also tropical fruits. Taste Fried Mine, a specialty made with Chinese noodles, eggs, cabbage and meat of all types. You also have the possibility to go to India neighbor.

Cost of living in Mauritius

The cost of living is low within the archipelago. Indeed, the average monthly net salary (after taxes) is currently 537.86 $. Prices are much lower than in Europe. For information, renting an apartment with 3 bedrooms, located in the city center of Port-Louis costs approximately 653$ per month.

Health and safety on the islands

It is advisable not to wear jewelry or valuable objects to avoid attempted theft, Mauritius being a very touristy place.

Mauritius was voted by Nomamundi as the best destination for teleworking. This visa is the cheapest and quickest to obtain for any teleworker in the world. Everyone can find themselves on this island, whether you are a hiker or a stroller.

How to work in Mauritius?

Working in Mauritius can be complicated if you have children. This is why there are coworking spaces that allow you to separate personal life from professional life. Currently, around ten coworking spaces have been set up in Mauritius. We advise you to rent your accommodation not far from one of these spaces so as not to waste time on local transport and take full advantage of your free time. You will be able to locate the coworking spaces in Mauritius on the map provided to you below.

Depending on your usage, you will find an internet subscription that suits you. Prices vary between €20 and €40/month. The incumbent provider dominating the Mauritius telecommunications market is Mauritius Telecom and is partly owned by the government. There are also wireless wifi boxes for digital nomads, allowing you to benefit from a good wifi connection in around a hundred countries.

What is the time difference?

The time zone is UTC+4. Do not neglect the time difference depending on the work done and your country of origin. Lhe time zone is an important element: there is a psychological risk if the employee connects at night outside of his colleagues' hours. In certain cases, depending on the area of expertise or the personality of the employee, the time difference will not be a key decision-making factor. To avoid suffering from loneliness and integrate as easily as possible, do not hesitate to exchange with other workers from around the world in the coworking spaces that you will frequent. 

A Premium Visa is required for those who intend to stay in Mauritius for a period exceeding 180 days in a calendar year. To qualify for this visa, you must be able to telework abroad. All nationalities are eligible for this program. You must have a minimum average bank balance of €1,500/month per applicant. Additionally, if you are traveling as a family, you will need to have an additional minimum of USD 500 per month per dependent under 24 years old.

What are the holdups ?

Thanks to our services, you will be able to obtain this visa in just 48 hours. Unfortunately this delay varies depending on the degree of occupation of the islands. This is why we advise you to make your request a few days in advance.

Can I come with my family?

If you want to develop your children's cultural awareness, what could be better than going abroad as a family. The way of learning for school is different but you will be able to teach them a new way of life and develop their knowledge of the world. The Mauritius Premium Visa allows you to telework with your family.

Can you renew your teleworking visa?

This visa is renewed. Mauritius has not yet decided to communicate on the maximum possible duration of teleworking stay. At Nomamundi, we advise you to always renew your visa when possible and when you like the destination. Indeed, one year is often not enough to discover a country in its entirety. Furthermore, if you decide to go as a family, so as not to disturb your children, it is preferable not to change your destination every year but to sometimes stay longer there. This allows you to fully acclimatize to this new way of life and feel all the benefits of the experience.
