The Mauritian Diaspora Scheme

The Mauritian Diaspora Scheme is incentive rich and aims to attract Mauritian nationals living abroad back to Mauritius. They want to allow Mauritian Migrants to contribute and aid in the development of the economy of Mauritius. The Mauritian government strongly believes that the globally dispersed Mauritian Community is of utmost importance and an asset to the Mauritian economy. In order to best understand the whether or not you are able to qualify for the Scheme, you need to understand what Diaspora is defined as.

The definition of Mauritian Diaspora:

  • A Mauritian Diaspora member is a citizen of Mauritius holding a valid Mauritian passport, a child or grandchild of that citizen, whether the child or grandchild holds a valid Mauritian passport or not.
  • The Diaspora member should not be a dependent child (under the age of 24 years old).
  • Individuals who do not hold a Mauritian passport but fit into the above definition, are also qualified as Diaspora Members.
  • The non-holders will be issued with a Permanent Residence Permit (PRP) valid for a period of 10 years, renewable.
