Here's How You Can Work Remotely From The Beaches Of Mauritius For A Year
Just off the east coast of the island of Madagascar, is where you can find some of Africa’s most pristine beaches and exotic wildlife. Mauritius, an island nation itself, draws in visitors from all over wanting to walk its soft-sand beaches.
What if we told you that you could make this exotic island your home office for the next year?
Well, you can! The nation recently announced a new Premium Travel Visa program for non-citizens, looking to change the scenery as we continue to move through this new normal of remote work. The visa is valid for at least 12 months, with an option to extend your stay.
To apply, you will need to show proof of your long-term visit as well as have travel and health insurance for at least the initial part of your stay. You must be a tourist, retiree, or professional traveling with family but intending to work remotely.
The visa program will prevent you from securing a job within Mauritius’ workforce, so you must have your own source of income lined up.
Once you arrive, you are required to quarantine for 14-days, as well as present a negative COVID-19 PCR test. Mauritius has been able to keep their cases pretty low throughout the pandemic.
The applications for the visa will be available soon. To learn more and to apply once available, visit; edbmauritius.org.
