We are a South African family currently residing in Cape Town.
We have an established business in our community in the food industry.
Because of the economic situation on South Africa currently, we are thinking of moving our business and our family to Mauritius.
Our current business is Indian food manufacturing, food catering, as well as a cooking school.
We are second generation family bakers, and we greatly believe that we can add to the economy of Mauritius, and also create employment there for the locals. And also with our International cooking school, help create opportunities for young people.
My questions are:
1) How difficult is it to get an Occupational visa for a family of 4 (2 adults , 2 kids)
2) Which types of businesses are successful and thriving in Mauritius? How difficult is it to set up there?
3) What is the cost of English medium schooling?
4) Which area is the best area to set up a food business? a place where we can be close to tourists?
We are doing a trip to Mauritius to investigate all these matters ourselves, But would love to hear the experiences of others who have done this before.
