How is Mauritius for digital nomads?


in Mauritius by @wakkos | 4yr  | 14 comments

Hello all,

Iโ€™m planning on spending a couple of month in Mauritius Island and even when Iโ€™ve been there for a week, never rented or worked there.

Does anyone here has tips or experience to share about Mauritius?

Cheers!

In short: SEA is both cheaper and has better quality of life. Living in the city is quite nasty and thatโ€™s almost the only place with coworking spaces. Getting a sim was also quite hard for me. Getting good quality affordable food without a car was also a big challenge.

Nature and the beaches are amazing though and people seem to be nice as well

Beatrice thanks for the PM and for the public reply and for your blog! Iโ€™ve read a lot so far xD

Something that I canโ€™t find is monthly budget. How much do you spend in a month?

I want to go to Mauritius because Iโ€™m looking for a couple of month in a house just in the beach, like: 15 minutes break, go swimming, come back, keep working. So you can have an idea on the kind of house Iโ€™ll be looking for.

Cheers and thanks in advance!

Hi Daniel,

If you havenโ€™t come to Mauritius yet, thereโ€™s a great airbnb place in Trou aux Biches, a few minutes walk from the beach. It has a nice terrace and even a little office space. I can PM you the details if youโ€™re interested. The couple who live there are super nice and know a lot about the island (they have launched an online guide for responsible tourism called Mauritius Conscious). Also, my husband and I are building a coworking and coliving offer (http://dodoworkplay.com) - we will be hosting our second coliving popup early next year and we put on regular events for entrepreneurs and freelancers to meet and discover the island (Coworking On Tour).

Cheers and safe travels,
Coralie

I lived in Mauritius for 10 months in 2012 and revisited for 3 weeks in 2013. Iโ€™d say itโ€™s not nomad friendly - back then there werenโ€™t any hipster cafe-s where you could drink spicy late and have a good wifi. itโ€™s still mostly a vacation spot for the wealthy. I was spending ~2500-3000 Euro per month (I got a long term rent, weekly rates are MUCH more expensive) - I was paying I think 500 euro for a 1-bedroom appt in Flic en Flac. Toyota Yaris was about 500 Euro as well, food prices in supermarket and restaurants were European level, pork and beef were particularily expensive, since itโ€™s imported from SA. I would it hard to live below 2000 p/m โ€ฆ I was lonely because there were no people who were living the same lifestyle as me โ€ฆ but enjoyed because beaches are amazing and so is the nature inside the island - forests and mountains. Locals are friendly, and it will be easier to mingle if you speak French. The place itself is safe, and developed.

I agree: Mauritius is not a nomad friendly destination: internet is shady in most rental places and there is no nomad community (some foreigners who moved to Mauritius, and opened a local business here, but no nomads).

Mauritius is a great holiday destination, but does not have to offer a lot if you are looking for a Nomad friendly destination: no nomads, lots of tourists - but not an international business vibe. Internet speeds often questionable, also in bars/restaurants. People come here for their honeymoon or to retire in the sun. Not much to do at night.

The proโ€™s are the friendly people, nice beaches and relaxed vibe.

Rent is pretty expensive for what you get. Thatโ€™s due to the honeymoon - tourist destination prices. But itโ€™s not crazy. Something decent, with 1, 2 bedrooms and a condominium pool will often go around 1200-1600 euro (close to the beach and shops). Studios will go cheaper of course. Make sure to check the internet speed. Everything, as always, depends on where you want to be, and the season.

All other prices are very ok. Lunches and dinners are lower vs European prices- if you skip the 5* resort restaurants. Food is ok as well and you have a nice range to chose from: creole - Indian - Chinese - European. No top cuisine and restaurants, but ok food for a good/correct price. People are very friendly, wherever you go.

I do enjoy my time here though- but Iโ€™m here with my girlfriend. We go for 1,2 dives everyday, get some work done, go for a walk on the beautiful beach, etc. If I would be alone on the island, I would probably take the first plane back :slight_smile: - but Iโ€™m not good in being alone in a quiet place for long to begin with :stuck_out_tongue:

In short: if you are looking for a nice island (nature and most beaches are beautiful here), spend some time on the beach, and mix that with work,- but do not care to meet other nomads, have just a bit of nightlife, want to do some shopping, etc - then youโ€™ll be fine here. Some beaches are really beautiful, and the vibe is always very relaxed. Rentals in front of the beach tend to be very expensive though, especially during high season (think $500 a night and way more).

Hi, Iโ€™ve sent you a personal message.

I am a digital nomad currently in Mauritius for a couple of months. My start here was very bad. My MacBook broke, I had difficulties finding someone to repair, then it took 2 weeks to wait for one part from Apple to reach the islandโ€ฆ and cost me more or less the same price as buying a new one. Living, eating out is quite expensive (not the same type of island lifestyle as in Thailand) but the weather is fantastic and people are very nice (I am Mauritian myself so I might be biased hahaha).

Ive also written a few posts on my blog about life in Mauritius and recently we had the visit of Project Getaway which was awesome.

There are a few co-working spaces although only starting so they are great for remote workers but not exactly for the digital nomad group of people. Itโ€™s mostly locals who want to share an office space.

That said, thereโ€™s a pop-up co-working week with Fibre Optic internet in November. Let me know if youโ€™re keen.

Cheers
Beatrice

Tax advisor for permanent nomads?


by @eljaques | 16d 15 days ago | 1 comment

I'm in need of a tax advisor who understands "our" typical situation. I'm all good on being legal on taxes at this point, but as I'm doing more investing and there's more compliance and KYC and such, it's getting more complicated to deal with this topic. Not living in my country of citizenship, company in another country, resident in yet another country, banking in a different country ... you know how it is, a pile of red flags.

Would be great to find a good tax advisor to sort things in a way that makes my situation as "explainable" and easily dealt with as possible. Any leads?

How to get into the digital nomad lifestyle?


in Switzerland by @filiptk | 28d 28 days ago | 1 comment

Hi, I've got a question to anyone who had experience with the digital nomad lifestyle. I'm 24, I'm in my last year of university doing computer science, got 3 years of experience mostly doing web development.

I never liked the idea of staying in one place, getting a job and growing roots - hence the will to take the opportunity and travel the world. My main question is โ€“ how do I go about it? Are there any useful resources I could look into?

How do I go about insurance and such once I decide to move. I currently live in Switzerland and do freelance work for one company. It's not a lot, since my studies don't allow me to pick up a full time job, but it allows me to cover simple expenses.

I'd be happy to get some insight into how things work and also happy to network with anyone interested.

Hey Nomads!

Iโ€™m looking for an international health insurance (no travel insurance) for my nomadic life. It should cover the basic services and at least be accepted in the EU (itโ€™s ok if itโ€™s not accepted in the US as Iโ€™m aware they rarely are). Nice to have: enter into a contract online. Anyone got a good experience or a recommendation?

I dream of being a digital nomad? How do I do it?


by @programmingmark | 9mo 8 months ago | 2 comments

Hello digital nomad!

I dream of being an independent digital nomad. But it feels very elusive & unattainable with my success rate. In full disclosure, whilst I have dreamed about making money online since high school; I have not earned a single cent making money online. $0, nada, zilch!! On the contrary, I have spent a lot of time & money on books, podcasts. Even though I have spent a lot of time reading/listening to others, I do not have anything to show for it!

I have made attempts in the past to start an online business, but these fizzle out quite quickly when I do not see traction especially when the goal I have set myself is too high.

Instead of reaching for the ultimate nomadic lifestyle goal, I want to start much smaller. Really small! I am simply looking to make $50 profit per month from a new online business. Thatโ€™s it.

I need some advice from you please!

  • Is $50 profit too low? How long did it take you to earn $50 profit per month?

  • What is a good way of achieving this goal?

Thanks
Mark
aka the $0 online business entrepreneur

How do digital nomads pay tax?


by @rodriigovieira | 9mo 9 months ago | 19 comments

Hello everyone! Iโ€™m new here and probably this is a very newbie question, but it doesnโ€™t leave my head.

How do you, nomads, pay your taxes? I mean, if youโ€™re constantly traveling, how are you going to pay taxes for a certain country if you are going to stay there a short period of time?
Or do you return to your โ€œoriginal countryโ€ and then pay them?

By the way, this forum has very nice cool formatting features! :smile:

Best place for Digital Nomad in Latin America?


by @rose_davis | 11mo 11 months ago | 7 comments

Hi!

I am planning to move to Latin America for 3-4 months (Oct-January). Iโ€™ve narrowed down 6 different places that I want to visit before committing to settling down, but Iโ€™d love to get some community input.

Here are the cities Iโ€™m considering:

  • Quito, Ecuador
  • Cuenca, Ecuador
  • Medellin, Columbia
  • Cartagena, Columbia
  • Antigua, Guatemala
  • San Marcos La Laguna, Guatemala

The most important things Iโ€™m looking for:

  • Fast/easily accessible internet
  • Easy to meet other nomads/make friends in general
  • Safe for women
  • Some sort of spiritual community (Iโ€™m also a yoga teacher)
  • Easily walkable city

Anyone have any experience with these places and can give some insight? Iโ€™m also completely open to other recommendations.

Thanks!
Rose

How do we solve housing for digital nomads?

 

by @levelsio | 11mo 11 months ago | 61 comments

Thereโ€™s been a lot of discussion on this recently.

Nomads usually stay in hostels, hotels and short-term apartments. But itโ€™s all not very optimal.

Iโ€™ve heard people suggest getting funding and building a network of houses you can stay at for a subscription price (e.g. Bruno Haid is working on that).

I donโ€™t want do physical stuff, so Iโ€™m thinking of building a platform around making housing better for nomads.

What are the housing problems nomads face? And how can we solve them with products/services?

Best place to set up a company selling digital services?


by @pras_k | 1yr 1 year ago | 10 comments

Whatโ€™s the best place?
For residency Iโ€™m looking at Portugal and they have the NHR (non habitual resident) program which would exempt dividends from foreign income.
So all Iโ€™m really looking for is the best place to actually start the company.
Biggest factors are of course low taxes and ease of setting up the company plus a business bank account that enables me to receive payments through Stripe.

What I found so far:
Hong Kong
Corporate tax rate of 16.5% (8.25% for the first HK$2 million)
โŠ•/โŠ– offshore income from outside HK is exempt from taxation but itโ€™s not clear whether this can be done in the first year and prorated or if itโ€™s only through filing the offshore exemption claim. This might take two years and requires not income from HK at all. More info on that would be great
โŠ– seems very difficult to get a business bank account
โŠ– necessary services and fees are roughly around โ‚ฌ2000 / year
โŠ– accounting requirements seem to be very strict
โŠ• Doesnโ€™t require local partner
โŠ• Agencies available that seem to handle most of the work

Singapore
Corporate tax rate of 17% (0% on the first S$100k, 8.5% up to S$300k)
โŠ– requires a local director. What are the implications of this?

Malta
Corporate tax rate of 35%
There is the โ€œfull imputation systemโ€ but I donโ€™t really understand it.
"In most cases, the tax refund to the shareholder is 6/7 of the tax paid by the company on profits distributed as dividends. The tax refund rate may be different in the following cases: " This would result in an effective corporate tax of around 5%.
โŠ– European customers would have to pay VAT and Iโ€™d have to deal with that

Cyprus
Corporate tax rate of 12.5% and there seem to be ways to lower this
โŠ– European customers would have to pay VAT and Iโ€™d have to deal with that
โŠ– requires staying in Cyprus for 2 months / year

I find it surprising how much research this requires and how much โ€œit dependsโ€ information is out there when Iโ€™d assume that there are probably thousands of digital nomads who probably have very similar requirements.

Do you "out" yourself as a digital nomad?


by @larsheather | 1yr 1 year ago | 2 comments

When you meet new people or reconnect with old friends, do you โ€œoutโ€ yourself as a digital nomad? The simple question โ€œwhere do you live?โ€ makes us uncertain now. We wonder if some places may be less welcoming to digital nomads, or if โ€œdigital nomadโ€ has a negative connotation in some places. If you are forthcoming from the start, does your status as a digital nomad make it hard to form friendships?

We would love to hear how other people navigate thisโ€ฆ how to balance being authentic in relationships vs. withholding the context (and allowing people to assume youโ€™re on vacation, for example).

Property Ownership - should digital nomads buy properties?


by @sparrow_23 | 1yr 1 year ago | 16 comments

I have been a digital nomad for the last couple of years. I have always worked in tech and now run a couple of profitable online businesses that give me a reliable income and allow me to fund a nomadic lifestyle.

I recently exited one of my businesses and I am considering to invest the income from the sale in properties, mainly for 2 reasons:

a) I donโ€™t want to keep wasting my money in renting apartments across the cities I stay

b) I believe in properties as investment and I want to diversify my investment portfolio (mainly stocks)

After years of constant wander from one place to another, now I am the type of digital nomad who sticks to few locations: I mainly rotate across 4 places each year (San Francisco, Medellin, Berlin, Bali). Buying a house in each of those location would be difficult and too expensive. Therefore, I was wondering if there was any sort of service that combines an investment opportunity with the ability to access different properties around the world (even if just for a limited time per year) ?

Imagine living in 4 cities per year and having a house in each place that you can exclusively use for 3 months and at the same time having your investment growing (this depending on the market, of course). Wouldnโ€™t that be great? I believe it could be done via a property fund selling you a share and giving you access to some of their properties for a limited timeframe each year.

Has anyone heard of anything like that?

Thanks!

Do any digital nomads travely solely by motorcycle?


by @fraserdeans | 2yr 1 year ago | 10 comments

Last summer I spent some time travelling through Thailand and Cambodia and jumped on mopeds to get around. I fell in love with them, the freedom, the ability to get off the tourist trail and see areas of a country not written about in tour books.

Recently a friend of mine cycled from London through Western Europe down to Morocco. His journey, stories and photo blog have all inspired me to see Europe by road rather than missing it all by plane.

Iโ€™ve been encouraged to do the same longer term through Europe. Next month Iโ€™m heading off to Spain to start that journey.

I was wondering if any nomads here are on similar journeys? Does anyone motorcycle between cities setting up to work for a couple weeks then moving on?

If so, have you got any advice/tips for someone just starting that journey?

Where should I register my company as a digital nomad? Singapore, Hong Kong?


in Singapore by @raphadk | 2yr 1 year ago | 14 comments

Hey guys, hereโ€™s a question Iโ€™ve been asking nomads I meet everywhere, but still havenโ€™t found good information. My startups mostly focus on american and european markets but I donโ€™t have a registered company, nor I live permanently on any of these countries.

I get the cash payments online in paypal (or adsense) and transfer it to Thailand (or Malaysia, or Bali, or Brazil, or wherever Iโ€™m at). The thing isโ€ฆ for low volume living expenses it seems fine, but as I scale the business, Iโ€™m starting to think more and more about fiscal law.

A fellow nomad told me to transfer it to Singapore, Hong Kong or The Virgin Islands, and then use an international credit card anywhere. I donโ€™t know if itโ€™s the best way to optimize thisโ€ฆ any ideas?

Also, could there be any problems in selling to these countries without a registered local company?
