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, the Business Process Outsourcing sector, or the Pharmaceutical sector or the Food processing sector, then the minimum monthly salary to be eligible for an Occupation Permit is Rs 30,000.
