Mauritius' most attractive selling point is having such a thriving place to work and invest, blended with an impressive quality of life.
As an investor looking for profitable ventures - or a professional attracted to Mauritius' shores by their growing international business sector, or as a person looking for a safe and hospitable place to retire - living in Mauritius simply means you can have it all, a full year round. A lush and pristine landscape, stunning views of mountains and gorges, a translucent turquoise lagoon ringed by its coral reef, white sandy beaches stretching several kilometers…
Enjoyable and beautiful, Mauritius is also a safe place to live either as a national or an expatriate single professional, family or retiree. Crime prevalence is very low making Mauritius one of the safest law-abiding countries of the world. On the health front, the country is free from many of the diseases affecting the sub-tropical countries of the world.
Several public and private hospitals, clinics and specialised health centres can be found locally, offering world-class service. While health services are free-of-charge in government hospitals and dispensaries around the country, health insurance policies are currently available from a number of local and international service providers.
The education sector boasts several schools of international standard, both public and private, delivering the Cambridge University A’ levels, the French Baccalaureate and the International Baccalaureate. Several tertiary education providers can also be found, offering internationally recognized degrees and post-degree qualifications.
Mauritius property comprises of competitively priced luxury apartments, fully furnished villas, and beach front residences available for rent for either the stay of your holiday, for longer term or purchase.
Investors can purchase Mauritius property simply as a holiday house or investment. For those that want to purchase Mauritius property with a view to gaining residency, the Property Development Scheme (PDS), which allows for the development of a mix of residences, is designed to facilitate the acquisition of residential property by non-citizens in Mauritius. The PDS project includes villas, apartments, penthouses and other high standards residences.
A non-citizen is eligible for a residence permit upon the purchase of a villa under the PDS scheme when he has invested more than US $500,000, or its equivalent in any freely convertible foreign currency.
Once all requirements of the scheme have been met and the PDS Certificate has been issued, application for the Residence Permit can be made.
