Mauritius Travel Advice

Climate
Mauritius is an all year destination with a sub tropical climate. From November to April coastal temperatures reach 34c and from May to October the average temperature is 24c. Cyclones occur occasionally in Mauritius (usually in January and February), which may result in a couple of days heavy rain and winds, but, of course these cannot be predicted. However, at this time of year, the weather is generally still hot with prevalent sunshine. During the cooler months of May to September we recommend that you take a jumper or cardigan for the evenings.

Health
Vaccinations are not required for passengers travelling direct to Mauritius. At certain times of the year there have been incidents of stonefish in shallow water and for this reason we recommend that you wear beach sandals for your protection in the water.

Travelling with Medication
If you are carrying personal prescription medication to Mauritius, you must carry a copy of your latest prescription and the drugs should be carried in their original containers bearing the name and address of the dispensing pharmacy. If you are in possession of tranquillisers and hypnotics such as Valium, Rohpnol, Lexomil or Ativan or dangerous drugs such as Co-Proxamol tablets without a covering prescription and/or medical certificate, this may result in a police enquiry.

Passports and Visas
British passport holders do not require visas for Mauritius. If you have any other passport please contact the Mauritian High Commission, 32-33 Elvaston Place, London, SW7 5NW, telephone 020 7581 0294 or check the web site, www.maurinet.com. Your passport must be valid for 6 months after the date of your return.

Currency
The Mauritian Rupee is the currency unit, which is divided into 100 cents. All major currency notes may be exchanged at the banks or hotel cashiers. Traveller cheques are generally offered at a much better rate of exchange than notes, and you will get a better rate if you cash your cheques at a bank rather than the hotel cashiers. The Bureau de Change and banks at the airport are open for the arrival of most flights. All major credit cards are accepted in Mauritius, and there are a number of ATM facilities at the airport and in towns.
