The Premium Travel Visa
Mauritius has introduced a new Premium Travel Visa for foreign nationals who intend to stay in Mauritius for a maximum period of one year as a tourist, retiree or a professional, and is willing to come with his/her family and carry out his/her business or work remotely from Mauritius in a Covid-safe destination.
Applying for a Premium Visa is a simple online process, which opened on 16 November 2020. An application will be processed within 48 hours and the e-visa will be issued via email. The Premium Visa is issued free of charge and there is no processing fee.
The Premium Visa is valid for a period of one year and is renewable. A Premium Visa is required by those who intend to stay in Mauritius for a period exceeding 180 days in a calendar year. For those staying for less than 180 days, a tourist visa can be granted on arrival to Mauritius. Foreign nationals staying in Mauritius under a tourist visa can apply for a Premium Visa during their stay in Mauritius.
In order to qualify for the Premium Visa, the applicant must have proof of his/her long stay plans and sufficient travel and health insurance for the initial period of stay. The following criteria should also be met:
- The applicant should not enter the Mauritius labour market;
- The main place of business and/or source of income and profits should be outside Mauritius;
- Documentary evidence should be provided to support application such as purpose of visit, accommodation etc.;
- Other basic immigration requirements.
A holder of a Premium Visa is permitted to apply for an Occupation Permit if he/she intends to work or invest in Mauritius or a Residence Permit as a retired non-citizen. Foreign nationals may also acquire a residential property developed under the Integrated Resort Scheme (IRS), Real Estate Scheme (RES), Property Development Scheme (PDS) or Smart City Scheme (SCS). A foreign national is also allowed to acquire an apartment located in a building of at least ground plus two floors.
Money spent in Mauritius through the use of foreign credit or debit cards is not liable to pay tax in Mauritius. A person becomes a tax resident and therefore liable to pay tax in Mauritius if he/she spends 183 days or more in the country.
