Visa and Entry Requirements
A visitor must be in possession of a valid passport and a return or onward ticket. A visitor’s visa is normally granted for a period of two weeks to one month upon arrival, to almost all holders of a valid passport, with one or two exceptions.
Currency and Payments
The monetary unit is the Mauritian Rupee (Rs.) which is divided into 100 cents (cs). At the latest exchange rate, one Euro is worth around Rs. 41. Credit cards are normally accepted by banks and most hotels, restaurants and tourist shops.
Shopping hours in our main cities range from 9.30 am to 7.30 pm (Monday-Saturday). Some shops are open till noon on Sundays and public holidays. Many duty free shops and modern shopping centres offer a wide choice of products.
Take your best beach and casual wear. In the winter months (June -September), carry some light woollen clothing for the cool evenings.
