Visa information

 

 Content Editor

 
PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR VISA INFORMATION COUNTRYWISE
 
The content of this document is for information purposes only. The responsibility for verifying entry
requirements rests entirely with the individual traveler. As visa requirements often change at short
notice, travellers must always check personally with their travel agencies or the respective
embassies/representative
offices to ensure that this information is accurate for their specific purpose prior to departure.
 
The following conditions apply to all countries:
Travelers should have certain documents, amongst others, a valid passport for at least 6 months with enough blank pages,
return/onward air-tickets, letter of invitation from host/hotel reservation, insurance, and sufficient financial means to
meet the cost of stay.
A visa or permit does not, however, guarantee automatic entry into the foreign country, as the final decision to grant
entry rests upon the immigration officials of the foreign country.
 
Disclaimer notice: The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Regional Integration and International Trade of the
Republic of Mauritius is not responsible for any change in the visa procedures of the foreign countries
and shall not be held responsible in case the traveler is not granted entry visa or in case of deportation.
