I am planning on spending 2-3 months per year in Mauritius if possible. Certaingly 2-3 months in the first instance, hopefully around July/August 2008.
I did find the government website (http://www.gov.mu
) fairly useful in answering some of my questions, but hopefully others with experience may be able to help me?
Does the government permit multiple entries for tourists? Say I was to spend 2-3 months in the Republic every year, would that be allowed?
Cost of renting on a monthly basis: it seems really hard to figure this one out. This forum has some very good information and I've googled too, can anyone comment on these numbers (am I way off, or just about right?)
Monthly rent on modern(ish) 1 bed apartment within walking distance (or short bus ride) of the beach approx 10,000 MR/month.
General cost of living (eating out etc) approx the same (10K/month).
Finally, a question about Wimax. I've read the island has 98% coverage. Do any forum members connect via Wimax? Do I need any kind of laptop conversion to connect whilst there? (I use regular wifi).
Thanks in advance if anyone can help, and I look forward to contributing here.
