Living in Mauritius: Healthcare and Education

Planning on living in Plaisance City in Mauritius? You want to know more about how healthcare and education is on the island? Here is everything you need to know about healthcare and the education system of the island of Mauritius.

Healthcare in Mauritius

Whilst there is publicly funded healthcare provision in Mauritius for local residents, as an expat you would usually need to pay your own medical costs. It is therefore important to ensure that you have appropriate medical insurance before you move to Mauritius. There are plenty of public hospitals on the island, but many expats prefer to make use of one of the private hospitals such as the Darne Clinic or the Apollo Bramwell Hospital, where a broader range of services can be offered and superior facilities are available. A small number of complex medical procedures may not be available in Mauritius, and for these you would need to be transferred to a hospital in South Africa or Reunion.

Malaria does not occur in Mauritius except in some rural areas, so there is  little need to take precautions against this, and you are typically not required to have any vaccinations when traveling to and from the country, unless you come from a country with yellow fever risk transmission. Nevertheless, standard immunizations against tetanus, diphtheria, mumps, measles and rubella (MMR), as well as for hepatitis A and B are recommended.

Education in Mauritius

Education is highly valued, and the state provides free education from primary school through to university for children who live in Mauritius. There is also a wide choice of international schools that are ideal for children moving from overseas to Mauritius, for example, Alexandra House School and the International Preparatory School for children aged up to 11 years. In addition to academic subjects, pupils have the opportunity to take many extra classes such as ballet, art, netball, tennis, touch rugby, and cricket.

For secondary level students there is also a range of private schools to choose from, such as Le Bocage International School and Northfields High School, where pupils can study for academic qualifications, for example, international GCSEs, A levels, and the International Baccalaureate Diploma. Fees are payable for all international schools. The high standard of education at the international schools also attracts Mauritian children to these establishments, offering expat pupils the opportunity to become more integrated in the local community.

 

Property Mauritius: Capital Gains!

More and more investors are seduced by the island's softness, secure real estate programs and taxation. We met those who live between France and the Indian Ocean and visited one of the areas in which they invest.

Why buy a property in Mauritius?

There are those who are looking for a second home at one or two hours from home to spend all their weekends there and there are others. Among them, some are ready to go further, longer. Often because they are retired, or pre-retired and they may consider spending several months away from France, but not always. Some active people have also discovered the soul of a "bird traveler" since they can work remotely and continue, thanks to new technologies, their activity far from their usual base. More than 9000 kilometers from France, Mauritius is one of the destinations that attracts French, but also Belgians, British, Swiss and South Africans who are looking for a home to live differently.

Resales with nice capital gains

What do they like today? Their new social life next to people who look like them and whose values ​​they share. "We are surrounded by many French people, here life is easy, calm, we feel safe," said Mrs. G. They had their villa built in the field, facing golf. "Finally, it cost us much less than if we had done in the south of France," says the couple.

Their very contemporary, bright villa of 420 m² with a beautiful outdoor living room cost 1.1 million euros. They are in the heart of a secure domain, but the guarding remains discreet, and they can enjoy the restaurants, gym and swimming pool of the village. They decided to spend their free time four months a year in several periods, but they do not want to rent their new home.

Some early buyers have resold their apartments or villas with profit, it seems. Similar goes for our upcoming project – Plaisance City – the resale value will indeed help in making nice capital gains – Why not reserve yours now?

Plaisance City: Invest in Mauritius

Why choose Mauritius?

If, like many expats, you are seduced by Mauritius to the point where you are actually thinking of settling there, you will not regret it. Through its policy of good practice, Mauritius has become a hub for ethics, good governance, transparency, economic and political freedom. In 2014, the country (ranked 39th in the world) is the most competitive African country in the world competitiveness ranking established by the World Economic Forum. It ranks first in the Ibrahim Index of African Governance (IIAG) 2014 with a score of 81.7 out of 100 and 28th in the overall ranking in the 2015 Business Facility (out of 189 economies).

Invest in Mauritius

The financial services sector is one of the main contributors to the Mauritian economy and the country is continuously improving its range of financial products by offering quality services. There are many good reasons to invest in Mauritius. First, the island enjoys an attractive tax regime favoring foreign investment and unlike many African states, Mauritius is a good student in terms of political, social and financial stability. Moreover, the availability of a highly skilled, bilingual and affordable workforce is proving to be one of its major strengths. As a signatory of several multilateral treaties and conventions ensuring the protection of foreign investors, the country offers them a dream environment in which economic conditions are favorable: lack of trade controls, protection of foreigners' assets, double taxation treaties under the OECD, a convenient time zone in front of Europe, free zones and the provision of its free port to investors. Mauritius also seduces by its tropical climate, its geography made up of plateaus, coastal plains and its coastline bordered by turquoise lagoons and white sandy beaches, not to mention the warm welcome and good humor of the Mauritians …

Why Plaisance City?

Indeed, while the north sees its space saturated by the many luxurious villas, the still uninhabited Southeast of the Island was the occasion to bring out an environment of life and work exemplary while leaving intact its reserves natural and marine forests. many projects such as Plaisance took place to enable the Mauritians to acquire an affordable and environmentally friendly property.

The South of the Island is booming by an increasing number of international tourists who buy houses in the rest of the island but also by the arrival of many international businessmen coming to settle. Indeed, Mauritius is a hub for companies trading with Asia and Africa.
