When you are working remotely from home, it does not matter which location you are working from. With the pandemic pushing people to work from home, Mauritius has become the latest addition to the list of countries that have introduced long-stay visa policies. The new Premium Travel Visa for Mauritius is applicable for all non-citizens and valid for up to one year, though it can be renewed. If you are interested in an extended stay, you must enter the island nation as a tourist, retiree, or as a professional travelling with family and intending to work remotely.
Travellers Will Need Sufficient Travel & Health Insurance
If you wish to stay and work from Mauritius, you must produce proof of your long-stay plans. You must ensure that you have sufficient travel and health insurance for the initial period of your stay. However, you will not be able to enter the Mauritian workforce while there. Your principal place of business or office should be located outside the island. You will also have to provide your accommodation details and other basic immigration requirements. Here are 5 Things To Do If You Lose Your Indian Passport While Travelling Abroad.
