Some background before I pepper you with all my questions, I think it will make it easier to understand where I am coming from.
I work for a Google trusted agency here in South Africa in the position of Manager, and my husband as a Senior Systems Engineer in IT specializing in Vmware. My company is expanding to Mauritius in the next two years and I am awaiting a personal monetary (lets call it inheritance) pay-out at the end of February but not sure what amount I will receive.
We are contemplating moving over to Mauritius beginning of 2019 with our son, who will be 18 in 2019.
I would like to invest in Mauritius and buy a property, in February of next year. I have read everything I can on BOI, occupational permits and so forth and how we can obtain permanent residency as we would like to permanently relocate to Mauritius.
My husband is aged 33 and would like to pursue an IT career there, I would stay with my current company.
I do not want to buy into a RES as I do not want all my money to go into the property and have seen what the prices are to buy into a RES. I would prefer us staying in a 2 bedroom house, not apartment close to where my husband would work (where the locals stay and not close to the tourists) and as I prefer this, it means as I understand I would not qualify for permanent residency.
What would my best option be for us to move over 2019, best investment and any advise you could give would be greatly appreciated.
Warmest Regards to all
