From what I've heard, it takes around 3 months to get your passport when requested outside of Mauritius (through an embassy). I know someone who's waited 6 months though, that's why I always advise people to get the passport renewed by a family/friend in Mauritius. You just need to complete the application form and send a letter authorising that person to collect your passport on your behalf but I think that's a bit too late for you now.
