Live & Work Remote in Mauritius

Nothing is predestined. The obstacles of your past can become the gateways that lead to new beginnings.

Ralph Blum

In the last 12 months, many of us have learnt to adapt to very new ways of working, studying and even new ways of living. The experiences and lessons learned have allowed for growth and evolution of the way we think, do and act. The changes, small or radical, have led to opportunities lost BUT many more opportunities gained.

A new opportunity means a fresh start. It brings with it so many wonderful and exciting possibilities!

  1. Hi – I have been on holiday to Mauritius a few years ago and now I am considering retiring on the rock. I would appreciate assistance as to when and how I can come to Mauritius to get the ball rolling.

    • Hi Pieter!
      Thanks so much for reaching out to us with regards to this! We would love to set up a call with you to kickstart the process of making the beautiful island of Mauritius your HOME!

      • Hi, I have always wanted to take the opportunity to work remotely in Mauritius with this Visa, but Sadly my country, Nigeria is not listed as Eligible. I am a Graphic Designer and I work remotely for various clients around the globe. I am also in the verge of getting a full time role which definitely would generate me an income of over $3000 monthly. I really wish I could move to Mauritius with my spouse who also has an online business. Is there any possibility for us?

        • Hi Genevieve

          Unfortunately Nigeria is not one of the listed countries which are eligible for the 1 Year Premium Visa in Mauritius.

          However you can still come to Mauritius via a tourist and apply for the Premium Visa online, during your stay in Mauritius.

          • Hi

            Is South Africa On the list eligible for the 1 year premium visa?

          • Hi Nathmie

            Yes, South Africa is on the list of eligible countries!

            We will be in touch with you shortly to send the information regarding the Premium Visa.
