A visa stands as an official endorsement granted by the Immigration Office/Embassy/Consular of Mauritius. It confirms that your application to enter Mauritius has undergone scrutiny by an Immigration Officer, deeming you eligible to enter or transit through Mauritius for a specific purpose.

This authorization permits the holder to travel to Mauritius via a designated port of entry, but does not inherently guarantee the right of admission into the country. The ultimate decision regarding admission for non-citizens rests with the Immigration Officer at the point of entry in Mauritius, who determines the duration of stay for each visit.

Visas and extensions of stay are provided without charge.

Exemptions from Visa Requirements include:

(a) Mauritian citizens

(b) Residents of Mauritius under the Immigration Act

(c) Spouses of Mauritian citizens

(d) Children or stepchildren or lawfully adopted children of individuals mentioned in (a) and (b) above

(e) Holders of Diplomatic Passports, excluding those issued by specific governments

(f) Crew members of vessels on duty or in transit to join another vessel

(g) Holders of Laissez-passer issued by recognized international organizations

(h) Individuals intending to stay in Mauritius only during a vessel’s arrival and departure.
