Popular destination for expatriates

Investor-friendly environment

One of the main attractions of Mauritius is its attractive tax regime and low entry barriers for companies and individuals.

Mauritius is becoming one of Africa’s great economic success stories. The growth rate is expected to increase by 75 % over the next decade. With economic prosperity and job opportunities on the horizon, the island nation of Mauritius has become a new place to relocate or start a business.

The country has lower tax rates than South Africa, and an extensive network of double taxation treaties and tax incentives for foreign investors. Its efforts to attract significant foreign investment are paying off. Corporate and personal income taxes are all levied at a rate of 15 %, with other tax incentives available.

Fast-growing region

The Indian Ocean region’s rapid economic growth makes it a haven for wealthy individuals. These investors and businessmen come for the business opportunities and stay for the idyllic island lifestyle. Work and residence permits are freely available to foreigners wishing to work, invest, live, or retire in Mauritius.

For those hoping for a safer place to live, Mauritius is also one of the 20 safest countries in the world. The country offers a range of residency programs for different income levels, such as

  • 10-year family residency permit (minimum investment : 250,000 USD)
  • Premium Investor Certificate (minimum investment : 11.7 million USD)
  • Real Estate (minimum investment: 375,000 USD)
