As per law, a buyer who invests more than USD 375,000 is eligible to apply for the residency (the authorization to stay in Mauritius as long as they wish but no citizenship and no Mauritian passport). The application is sent to the Prime Minister’s office who vets the application (or not) as per the documents (KYC) handed over. The residency is given to a married couple and kids less than 24 years old.

Non-citizens who obtain a residence permit under a real estate scheme such as the PDS do not need a work permit or occupancy permit to invest and work in Mauritius.
