Self-Employed Occupation Permit Mauritius


Do you work for yourself and want to live in a tropical place with good internet? Think about getting a Self-Employed Work Permit for Mauritius. With this permit, you can work for people in Mauritius and other countries. The permit costs $1,000 and lasts 10 years.

To keep the permit, you need to spend at least $35,000 and earn MUR 800,000 (16,000 USD) each year, starting in the third year. You apply online first. Then, you need to open a bank account in Mauritius and put at least $35,000 in it.
