Start now.

Living cost. Lifestyle down there. Politics. Any means for a legitimate seeking individual to rise? what's the business industry like?

As a Nigerian, its so hard to suffer abroad except there is
no other way around your situation.

Been legit also helps. Open your mind to

This is not about been lazy or lucky, it is about reality, before you start packing that your bag and baggage about to depart from Nigeria for Mauritius, please think twice, i guess your friends are not telling you the truth about Mauritius, i have been here close to two years and i can tell you what it is like here. If you have your money to spend,you are highly welcome.
It is not easy to work and finance your studies here. Your friends may be feeding you with lies by telling you that it is rosy here as that is always the norms for most Nigerians living abroad so as to lure more gullible Nigerians to believing that there is alot to gain here thereby reaping from where they do not so. I knew quit few of them on this Island that are doing that.
I believe the time is now that we youth have to wake up and stop living and believing in the past. Let us adopt the role of telling people what is obtainable or whats not. we have to stop this selfish interest of benefiting from others sweat. If you are coming to Mauritius for studies, get your facts correct research and ask questions, if you do not have anyone to sponsor your education, it is better you invest the little money you have in Nigeria rather than wasting it on a flight ticket.
Mauritius is 2040 km² in Area while Lagos is 999.6 km² meaning that the whole Mauritius is a little bit bigger than the twice of Lagos state and the population is 1.2m the manufacturing sector is like 2% and highly dependent on tourism.
Just this year Febauray, 2 Nigerian students were arrested at the airport with the possession of cocaine.
Like most Nigerian will boost to their peers back home that they are living a good life abroad,don't just rely on their fact verify further.

Also do not call cheating others of their earnings and telling lies is survival instinct, i refuse to believe that, hard working accepted but do not compromise the image of your country just because of your quest for survival.

I endorse this post. This guy obviously knows a lot about Mauritius.

it's a beautiful island country where you can come and relax, spend money and go to school. But don't expect to get a big paying job. The jobs you will get will just be enough for you to feed yourself and probably house yourself but not enough for you to pay for your school fees. Besides, most jobs will require you to be fluent in English and French(Bonsoir). The people who are lucky here are the programmers. Most other international students here work as casual workers in 5 star hotels where they stand from morning to night grin

If you must come to Mauritius, make sure the money throughout your stay is complete. The good things here is that it a relatively developed country. it is clean, peaceful and the ladies are beautiful just like the beaches of Grand Bay, Flic en flaque etc.

Afam, where have you been?

You stopped replying my mails.

Thanks for the heads up here.

Mau is an African country so nobody should expect to live and sustain with Lil salary from casual jobs.

All in all, it's a place to be. The ladies, what did you say about em again?

I've been around.

Mauritius is not your typical African country. It is developed to some level. But it is not a country full of industries. It's just a small Island with Tourism, IT and Agriculture(Sugar car) as it's source of income. You can get a job that will sustain you. But not big enough to pay for one's school fees. Like i said, the major limiting factor towards getting a job if knowing how to speak french. Most jobs require fluency in French and English.

Great!

Some were asking for infos about the schools and prices.

I'm pretty sure you're running a course there as well.

If you can give some pricing infos, school fees, living expenses (on norm) I'm sure their babes shouldn't cost much too. Lol

For tourist purpose please check with hotels and they will be delighted to have you in the island
fees charged by hotels varies depending on type of service and qualities of facilities it offers
like 50 to 100 dollars per day just guessing not the real figure but something to work with
airfare is between 1500 to 1800 dollars with south African airways with stop over in Johannesburg
i like travelling the cheapest way because of my pocket and i do spend like 2 days
that is from Nigeria to Nairobi kenya for 580 dollars with Air Rwanda return ticket and from Nairobi to Mauritius 680 dollars please
do note that i do book 2 or 3 months in advance and also 50 dollars for visa at nairobi airport total cost 1100 dollars
is ok for me as a student.
Thank you.

NO is not free (you will pay for it at POE).......you can fly with Nigerian passport without visa and get one at point of entry after showing your valid hotel and means of sustenance during your stay. Beware, they are also quick to deport using the next available flight and also they have good records of tourist as most hotels passed the message to them as well....a Namibian person was on the verge of deportation at POE on my recent visit (last month).
