While some foreign nationals are visa-exempt based on their citizenship, most business visitors to Mauritius require a Business Visa before travel. Business visas are issued by Mauritian consular posts or by the Passport and Immigration Office of Mauritius. They generally allow a total stay of up to 120 days per calendar year provided that each business visit does not exceed 90 days. Business Visas may be extended at the discretion of the Passport and Immigration Office.
There are two types of work authorization in Mauritius: (1) The Work Permit - issued by the Ministry of Labour, Industrial Relations, Employment and Training and (2) The Occupation Permit as a Professional - issued by the Economic Development Board and the Passport and Immigration Office. The Work Permit is suitable for the hiring of skilled foreign nationals or for employees earning a salary below Rs 60,000​. The Occupation Permit as a Professional is suitable for employees whose monthly base salary exceeds Rs 60,000 (except for ICT scenarios where the salary threshold is lowered to Rs 30,000).
