Foreigners who have legally lived in Mauritius for a qualifying period can seek naturalisation. Non-citizens who invest in Mauritius can pursue this process with their investment as a stepping stone. In turn, they can gain many benefits from acquiring a Mauritian passport.
The Henley Passport Index rates the Mauritian passport amongst the top 3 in Africa and top 50 worldwide. Mauritius earned this distinction with its passport honoured visa-free in 146 countries. The ranking is based on the database of the International Air Transport Association, the largest and most precise travel information.
An investment of not less than USD500,000 in Mauritius
Continuous residency in Mauritius for not less than 2 years prior to the date of the naturalisation application
Generally, applicants for naturalisation also have to:
Pass a test on good character
Speak English or another local language well
Show intent on permanent residency on the island
Real estate as a stepping stone
Foreigners who invest in Mauritius real estate are eligible for a permanent residence permit of up to 20 years. They have many great choices on properties that would qualify them for naturalisation and a Mauritian passport.
For the top choices, it is best to proceed to the north of Mauritius. Here, 2Futures has several luxury real estate projects either underway or already completed.
