ResidencE Permit

Retired Non-Citizen

Considering retirement in Mauritius is a great idea, especially if you’re 50 years or older, and this gives you the possibility as a retired non-citizen to apply for a residence permit.


A Retired Non-Citizen needs to provide a certified bank statement from the country of origin or residence, indicating:

(a) Minimum amount of USD 18,000; or

(b) Guaranteed minimum income of USD 1,500 per month.


A Residence Permit (RP) for Retired Non-Citizens will be initially issued for a maximum period of ten years. Subsequent renewals are subject to meeting established criteria.

Right to Invest

Retired Non-Citizens are allowed to invest in any business, on the condition that they are not engaged in employment within the business and do not receive a salary or employment benefits from it.

Right to work

Foreign retirees have the option to engage in employment within specific sectors. In order to do so, they must apply for either a work permit or an occupation permit, depending on the circumstances.
