Living in Mauritius for 6 months

Postby Natasha » Wed Jun 20, 2007 20:26

Hi Everyone!! What a great site....I am British Mauritian living in London, aged 26. I am coming to Mauritius in August for my cousin's wedding but have the idea to stay for 6 months, to live the life there. I have a law degree and want to know whether it will be easy to get some work for about five months....
Also, will I need to get a work permit? Will MCB need to see a work permit to open an account for me (don't think so as my parents have accounts there). How much can I rent a decent apartment for with my partner (also British Mauritian). Or any general tips would be great!! I have been to Maurice many times, but now I want to try the life there, and try to improve my French as it's not great!

Any advice would be much appreciated Merci!

Hello Natasha,

It all depends on what type of jobs you are looking for. Due to the fact that you will work only 5 months (approx.) , I personnally dont think you will be able to work in any law related job unless you want only to have a work experience with any law firm.

In Mauritius we dont have NI (National Insurance Number) , so its pretty easy to be allocated a job based on a contract.

Concerning bank accounts , why dont you use your Visa/Mastercard?

Appartments , which region you are looking into?

The best way to have a glimpse of the mauritian culture is to go to any mauritian parties or fairs : u will sure hear loads of creole and french :)
