Salut and a warm welcome to the InterNations Mascarene Islands expat community. Whether you're about to arrive or you're a fresh face in the area, our members are here to make your life easier. Expats in the Mascarene Islands and elsewhere around the world have used InterNations to make new friends and settle in to their new environment. Once you have some experience, you too can begin making contributions. You may have some questions before you arrive, such as, "will I need vaccinations?" or "how do I get a work permit?". As our members have been through the move to the Mascarene Islands themselves, they can share their experiences and make it easier for you to settle in faster.

Complete with azure seas and beaches that are whiter than anywhere else in the world, the Mascarene Islands act as the ultimate paradise for expats. While Mauritius is the most developed of the islands, others are becoming more popular with expats each day. The new millennium saw Mauritius introduce its first international school, and as a duty-free island, it's an excellent place to live for those working in the finance industry, or those looking to enhance their business's fiscal prospects. As an area in the Indian Ocean that's been influenced by the Creole way of life, the Mascarene Islands are home to decadent restaurants. This includes Escale Creole in Mauritius, which is popular with expats and visitors alike.
