hello everyone..i have received an answer from the government of Mauritius about the work permit..i asked them what is the minimum salary for getting a work permit and they said it

There is no minimum salary for obtaining a Work Permit, subject to the salary being being with the prescibed minimum wage, and theoccupation being in a sector where there is scarcity in Mauritius.

A foreigner must in the first instance have an offer of employment and a contract from a local company. The company should apply for the relevant Work and Residence Permits with appropriate authorities.

Yours faithfully

Reply back with the link from the Government portal. Unfortunately in Mauritius you always get conflicting information. Unfortunately that's all I can advise.
