Civil marriage on tourist visa?

madam,,,,,i would like to say that you must leave mauritius once, and re-enter to enjoy your marriege cerimony.



yes he is allow to marry

you are Mauritian ???

I think he will need to specify this at the point of entrance into Mauritius

Hi there, I see you say you can help this lady. please could I ask you some advice.

I've been to Mauritius 3 times.
my boyfriend of 8 years is Mauritian and has a Mauritian passport but has always lived in SA.
He moved to Mauritius 8 months ago to run his dads company and is now a resident there.
i'll be going to Mauritius in May to see him
I'm looking for job opportunities as I would like to move there and apply for an occupational permit to live and work in Mauritius.
I'm trying to make sure I I have a few interviews set up when I'm there in May.
My boyfriend and I have discussed getting engaged once I am there and starting a life and a family together.
Do you know what steps I would take,? of any advice you have for me?
As I see you say to the other women that the next time she comes back into the country she would have to say she is coming there to marry a Mauritian? Would it be advisable for me to do that as well?
it says if I'm coming into the country as a professional I would have to earn 45 000 rupees per month, if I'm coming to work and get married - do you know if this still applies to me? as the salaries aren't that great in Mauritius and I wouldn't need to earn that much just yet as we will already have a house and a car and my boyfriend has a good job as well.
do I just apply for an occupational permit to live and work there for the max 3 years and then say we getting married when I re-apply for permanent residency after my 3 years is up? I'm not sure which route to take so your advice would be greatly appreciated as we want to do this properly and hassle free.

thank you

kayleigh: what you are staying is totally feasible. Naturalisation from marriage is 4 years not 3 though.  You got everything right. All the best !

Hey there,I wish I responded earlier,because I had to do the same thing. I was here for 6months and to get married I had to leave the island and return and enter with a marriage visa,not a tourist visa. A marriage visa is only valid for 30days so you have to have your ceremony within that time. Once your married you can apply for your residant permit visa,but you have to live in Mauritius for 4years before you gain your citizenship. Hope this helps,or you’ve sorted your situation already. There’s quite abit of paper work you need also,if you still need help send me a message x

Hello, I am from India and I am also gking Mauritius in this year to get married to a Mauritian.
So I have collected some information regarding this topic, they said I need marriage visa for this,I have searched a lot about marriage visa on internet but couldn't get anything properly. So if u have any idea then please help me out of this. I really need help. I wanna know that can I get marriage visa on Mauritius airport? Or can the immigration officer ask me more question regarding this topic? Can I get any problem if I say on Mauritius airport that I have come for marriage.
Please reply me.

Hi everyone.

I recently got married here in Mauritius Nov 2017.

It does not say on any official websites that you need the marriage visa but unfortunately you do (luckily I read it on an old forum before i arrived)

So at immigration at the airport the first thing you should say is marriage visa.

Next thing on the list is the civil marriage. If i remember correctly you have to wait a week or two weeks (I don''t remember do check) before you register for your civil marriage. Make sure you have all the documents they request for.

After that they schedule your day and you go get married. =)

Once all that jazz is done, you will need to take your documents (basically all the ones you needed before + your marriage cert and register it for a residence permit) I recommend you to do this asap because if your moral certificate is older than 6months they make your life miserable.  I technically got my residence permit 1month after I got married but they took 8 months to laminate it. (so keep following up)

* Residence permit and citizenship not the same thing. If you want a Mauritian passport, you need to live in Mauritius for 4 years.

Hope that helped. Good luck and congrats

Hello Jerome US citizen don't need to apply for visa.
When the immigration officer ask what's the purpose of your visit
She just have to tell them she is getting married that's all

*In addition, a woman willing to contract a second marriage before the expiry of 300 days since the dissolution of her first marriage by divorce or death must produce a medical certificate of non pregnancy.

*Where any party cannot produce (a) and (b) above, he or she may instead produce an affidavit.
