Foreign investors have notably continued searching for opportunities on Mauritius property for sale even amidst the pandemic. As of the 2020 third quarter, foreigners invested MUR5.1 billion in the country via its real estate schemes. These investments accounted for more than half of the MUR9 billion gross foreign direct investment inflows for that period.
Foreign investors continued channeling their resources to Mauritius properties not only because they find these investments more stable and secure. The government has also further sweetened its incentives for non-citizens’ purchase of Mauritius real estate properties. It lowered, for instance, the price threshold to USD375,000 for foreign buyers to gain residency on the island. Given this status, these buyers will no longer require an Occupation/Work Permit to invest and work in Mauritius.
