Entry Requirements

A visitor must be in possession of a valid passport and a return or onward ticket. A visitor's visa is granted normally for one month, but can be renewed for a further period upon request. Visas may be obtained from Mauritian Embassies and High Commissions. It is strongly recommended to contact the Passport Office or your nearest Mauritius contact for information on entry requirements.
