Spouses and dependent children are also eligible for residency.


An unmarried partner is entitled to a residence permit renewable on a yearly basis.

The residence permit granted as a result of an IRS real estate property acquisition enables the holder to work on the island, provided that he or she holds a work permit.

Given that the conditions for obtaining a residence permit are tied to the property purchased and that the permit is passed on from one owner to the other, a residence permit granted under the IRS shall remain valid until such time as the non-citizen (overseas buyer) ceases to own a property in Mauritius.
