Apple Pay is not available *from* Mauritian banks, but it uses the same underlying technology as Visa/Mastercard contactless payments, which are known as “Touch & Pay” here and are very widespread. So, it technically should work.

I would bring cash to a government office though, as those are often using very outdated technology.

Apple Pay with Visa cards works better for me than Mastercards …

Mauritian BANKS don’t support it yet, but if you have Apple/Google pay set up already with a bank from ourside of Mauritius then it will work just fine (same as contactless). People use it all the time.

Works fine everywhere I went which accepted contactless payments. Maybe you sould check for conversion rate , my cc rate was the same as a western union transfer or a cash conversion in any exchange .
Actually I got way better rates doing a bulk transfer from my cc on the moneygram app then sending to me as receiver so I can cash in directly to my MCB account.

I had to use my Canadian card once with Apple pay and It worked. The NFC technology works just as a tap chip on normal cards so it should be seamless. Cash is always preferred though.

Yes, I use it all the time. You just have to tell them you want to “Touch & Pay”.

I have a Visa credit card and an Amex in my wallet. The Visa credit card works everywhere. However, I can only use Amex if the merchant has a MCB device (red in colour).

My apple pay is connected to a european bank and it worked perfectly in mauritius some weeks ago. Most restaurants accept card payment/apple pay/contactless. Only in small snack restaurants we needed some cash.
