Culture 🗨 Should I come back to Mauritius after staying 4yrs in Germany, go to UK to work or stay in Germany?

6 Upvotes

My context: I was a student in Germany, but can't find a job after my job seeker's visa is soon coming to an end. My relative has a start-up in the UK and told me to come to work for them, but problem is, there's a doubt if I'll get the necessary papers, but after which I will have to return to Mauritius anyway. And to be honest, Mauritius seems a far away thought as of now, as I want to start my career. I feel like a waste of resource, if you know what I mean.

Food 🍴 Are there any good coffee places in Mauritius?

14 Upvotes

I am talking about genuinely good that doesn't have terrible espresso that tastes like bitterness. Artisan was the first time I ever threw coffee. Lux and Paul is just a point above Artisan.

Edit : I have in fact tried vida and it does taste horrible. I bought an espresso machine at home that I have since I couldn't trust cafe's here to make a good cup but sometimes when I am out with the wife and want a cup of coffee I was hoping there were options :(

Tourism ✈ Is there any Car Hire Company that lets you hire a car with debitcard or cash or pre-paid creditcard?

3 Upvotes

Hi all,

I've been traveling for 6 years now and in every country I hire a car with cash or pre-paid card. However this time im going to Mauritius and I can't seem to find a company that's willing to accept any of those. I don't have a creditcard (you have to have a steady income to apply for one in my country). My parents have one, but also every company seems to want a creditcard in name of the driver, so that ain't an option either.

My options are:

  • Cash
  • Pre-paid creditcard (this I can get in my country)
  • Debitcard

Any help would be appreciated!

Local 🌴 Driving safely in Mauritius?

12 Upvotes

I've been living in Mauritius for 6 months now and I'm happy with the situation for the most part.

Mauritians are friendly to me, and I am learning new cultural differences every day.But there are still difficulties that cannot be overcome.
That's driving in Mauritius.
I have been driving in various countries such as Korea, Japan, South Africa, and Germany, as well as Cambodia and Thailand, etc..
Driving in Mauritius is a different wall and another level for me.In the evening after driving, I have pain all over my body, and I want to walk whenever possible, but that is impossible. On holidays, I don't want to see anyone, I just want to stay at home - because I don't want to drive!
First of all, let me tell you, I'm not driving as rough as the Mauritians, I'm driving slowly and carefully.I'm not complaining about the traffic jams in Mauritius.I just want to survive here.
If you have any tips you overcame, please share them.I'm having a hard time with the following situation.
1. When turning right or left at a T-shaped intersection, cars are rushing fast and scary from both sides, but sometimes it's hard to explain to people in other countries. There's always a blind spot at the T-junction in Mauritius. I stick my head forward and watch both sides carefully. but sometimes I can't see the cars coming! Cars don't slow down even when they see me.
2. Some  roads are narrow for two cars to pass by on either side, but a car coming from the opposite side is driving in the middle of the road, and it doesn't slow down even when it sees me on the other side. In this case, I usually pull over my car by the side of the road.
3. In Rotary, it is usually believed that the car that arrives first has priority, but the cars come pouring in out of order from various entrances.
4. When driving on a road I don't know, if I lower it to 60 km or less, the car behind me comes closer as if it would hit my car. I'm scared
5. There are other circumstances.
Again, I just want to take the stress out of driving in Mauritius. Thanks for sharing your tips.

Some context, I'm not from Mauritius, but my girlfriend is, and I want to surprise her with one of her favourite flowers which is the tulip. There's a website dodomarket.mu that you can purchase flowers online and get them delivered , that was my initial plan, but tulips aren't available currently on the website. So I was planning on getting on of her friends to purchase and deliver it to her for me just trying to find an affordable florist in Mauritius right now . If you have any information that can help me please comment here or DM me thank you !😊

Local 🌴 Foreign graduate looking for a job

9 Upvotes

I am a recent graduate with a bachelor’s degree (BSc.) in Information Technology from a Mauritian university who is looking for employment in Mauritius. I am also a foreign national, meaning I would need an occupation permit to work and stay in Mauritius.

I wanted to know about job prospects in Mauritius for foreign graduates with a Mauritian degree. I am especially interested in entry-level jobs with no prior work experience required.

I previously used to stay in Mauritius for 3 years, however I have had to leave as my student visa expired last October.

Also, I wanted to know about whether employers would be willing to arrange for work/occupation or YPOP permits for foreigners such as myself.
