Work in Mauritius
Foreign nationals can take up employment in Mauritius under either a Work Permit or an Occupation Permit. A work permit applies when the foreigner’s intended salary in Mauritius is less than Rs 60,000 a month and is issued by the Ministry of Labour.
An Occupation Permit is a combined work and residence permit issued to foreigners obtaining a job in Mauritius with a salary above Rs 60,000 a month.
However, if the foreign professional intends to work in the Information and Communication Technology sector, then the minimum monthly salary to be eligible for an Occupation Permit is Rs 30,000.
