Not required for most
nationalities for stays of up to three months.
In Mauritius, visitors aged 16 years and over may import 200 cigarettes or 250g of tobacco; 1L of spirits; 2L of wine, ale or beer; 250mL of eau de toilette; and up to 100mL of perfume.
There are restrictions on importing food, plants and animals, for which permits are required. Other prohibited and restricted articles include spear guns and items made from ivory, shell, turtleshell
or other materials banned under the Convention on
International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES); it is
also illegal to take such items out when you leave.
You don't need a visa to enter Mauritius if you are a citizen of the EU, the USA, Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand or a number of other countries. You can find more information on the government website (www.passport.gov.mu). Initial entry is granted for a maximum of three months and proof of a planned and paid-for departure is required (though rarely asked for).
