Apartments and Parks

The Non-Citizens (Property Restriction) Act allows foreigners to purchase apartments in condominium developments of at least two levels above ground (G+2) with the prior approval of the Economic Development Board, provided the purchase price of an apartment is not less than MUR 6 million or its equivalent in any other hard convertible foreign currency.

Long Stay Visa:

Any non-citizen who has acquired an apartment for a price exceeding USD 500,000 or its equivalent in any convertible currencies may apply for a long stay visa.  The apartment should be found in a building of at least two floors above ground floor. 

A long stay visa allows a non-citizen and his dependents to stay for a consecutive period of 10 years, renewable depending on the status of ownership.  It remains valid so long as the non-citizen holds the apartment.
