Mauritius’ blinding blue waters could just be your next Zoom background. And on your time off, you might just be greeted by dolphins. Sounds too idyllic? The island paradise is now offering non-citizens a chance to work from there or holiday for an entire year, with a new long-term visa. 

Who can apply for a long-term Mauritius visa?

Remote workers, retirees, parents and children studying in the country and visitors are eligible to apply. All you need is proof of your long-term stay plans and medical and travel insurance. The fee for this visa has not been announced yet, but we do know that it entitles you to a one-year stay on the island. In contrast, a tourist visa to Mauritius lets you stay for up to 60 days. 

The visa will not be granted to those seeking employment in Mauritius. An applicant will have to show proof of employment or business, or a principal source of income outside of the island, along with the purpose of stay and details of accommodation. 

Rules to enter Mauritius

A person entering the island will have to follow a mandatory 14-day quarantine. Travellers will also have to present a negative RT-PCR test no longer than seven days old on arrival. They will have to undergo tests on the day of arrival as well as on day 14. An online platform for the premium travel visa application will be available shortly.
