Some 685 applications for Premium Travel Visa have been received as at 30 June 2021, according to latest Cabinet papers.

The Premium Travel Visa is available to any non-citizen who intends to stay in Mauritius for a maximum period of one year as a tourist, retiree or a professional willing to come with his/her family and carry out his business or work remotely from Mauritius.

Out of the 685 applications, 510 applications were approved, 64 applications were rejected for not fulfilling the required criteria, 101 applications were incomplete and 10 applicants were “no longer interested” in the scheme.

  • the applicants should not enter the Mauritius Labour market;
  • the main place of business and source of income and profits should be outside Mauritius;
