Visa Requirements 

British nationals do not need to obtain visas before arrival. A visa, normally valid for three months, will be issued on arrival to holders of valid British passports in possession of return tickets. 

Passport validity 

You must hold a valid passport to enter Mauritius. Your passport must be valid for a minimum period of six months from the date of entry into Mauritius. You may be refused entry to Mauritius if your passport has less than six months validity remaining or if you do not have a return ticket.
Please note, if you intend to travel to South Africa from Mauritius, you should be aware that although the South African authorities officially state that only one blank passport page is required for entry, recently several visitors have been refused entry and sent back to Mauritius as some officials are insisting on two blank pages. We advise that you have two blank pages in your passport on arrival in South Africa. 

Yellow fever certificate 

Please be aware that all passengers arriving from an area where yellow fever exists will need a yellow fever certificate. Further information can be obtained from the Mauritian High Commission in London.

Travelling with children 

Single parents or other adults travelling alone with children should be aware that some countries require documentary evidence of parental responsibility before allowing lone parents to enter the country or, in some cases, before permitting the children to leave the country. For further information on exactly what will be required at immigration, please contact the Mauritian High Commission in London
