My name is Sue and I'm coming from San Francisco, California. Early next year I'm going to come to Mauritius on a Tourist Visa and right away apply for the Retirement Permit. I don't expect to have any problems but just in case, I'm putting together my Plan B (and C?). I'll spend the first 3 months on the Tourist Visa and if I don't get the R. P., I think I'll go over to Reunion or Madagascar and then come back on another 3 month T. V. and try again. Does anyone know how long I have to be out of Mauritius in order to come back for another 3 months? Can I keep doing that? It’s not my preference but I like to have backup plans.
