Internet Connectivity in Mauritius

A Paradise for Digital Nomads

Timo Geldenhuys: “Today we are in the beautiful Blue Bay area, right near the airport in Mauritius. Behind me is the stunning natural aquarium, one of the best snorkelling spots in Mauritius. An interesting fact: many snorkelers here are new digital nomads residing in Mauritius, highlighting the importance of internet connectivity in Mauritius for them.”

Digital Nomads and Internet Connectivity in Mauritius

The Covid-19 pandemic has ushered in a significant shift in work culture and operations, with people seeking alternative lifestyles. Mauritius has responded to this trend by introducing the Premium Visa, a one-year visa renewable thereafter, catering to various sectors, including digital nomads. Thus, internet connectivity in Mauritius plays a pivotal role for these professionals with global job engagements.

Mauritius benefits from two undersea cables currently in operation, with plans to connect to two more, effectively making it part of a digital superhighway. The island boasts 5G connectivity enabling individuals to successfully run their businesses remotely.

Expat Testimonies About Internet Connectivity in Mauritius

I have a client, a bookie, who operates an online betting platform based in the U.K. During his holiday stays of 3 to 4 months per year, he seamlessly runs his operations from Mauritius, illustrating the reliability of the internet connectivity in Mauritius. Given the real-time nature of betting, precision and speed are imperative, yet he feels comfortable conducting his business from Mauritius.

Premium Visa Success

Since 2022, over 2,500 short-term premium visas have been issued, indicating significant interest in Mauritius as a remote work destination. Many visa holders initially opt for long-term rentals, gradually transitioning to exploring property purchase options as they become more acclimated to the Mauritian lifestyle.
