Have you always dreamed of getting away from it all? Come and discover Mauritius in 2020!
One might think that it’s not the time to travel, and yet at the moment, nothing is safer than coming to spend a few months in Mauritius. The country, considered a Covid Safe zone, has put in place a new one-year visa.
The current situation in Mauritius
Mauritius is now considered a "Covid Safe" zone. According to the WHO, the country has recorded fewer than 500 Covid-19 cases since the start of the pandemic. For example, there has not been a local positive case since the end of April.
The whole country is mobilizing to ensure the safety of the population and foreign visitors: the establishment of labels in hotels, opening of cafes and restaurants in compliance with barrier measures, etc.
Are you tired of the grayness? Come telecommute in the sun!
This is the idyllic promise of Mauritius, thanks to the new visa that will be implemented: the premium visa. Lasting for one year and renewable, it gives its holders the advantage of being able to settle in Mauritius for a few months, with few constraints.
Teleworking is spreading all over the world and this visa allows remote workers and investors alike to settle on this paradisiac island. Spending Mondays in the sun and working with your feet in the sand has finally become accessible! To obtain this visa, you simply need to justify your life plan for the next few months, agree not to enter the Mauritian labor market, and have primary accommodation and a source of income outside Mauritius. Subscriptions to health insurance and travel insurance are essential.
With this new visa, the country wishes to revive its economy, particularly affected by the pandemic and the oil spill of recent months.
