Visa Requirements for Canada Passport Holders – Mauritius (Republic of Mauritius)

Visas for tourism and business are issued upon arrival at the airport. Visas issued at the airport allow foreign travelers to stay in Mauritius up to 90 days.

Travelers coming from yellow fever infected areas must present a certification of yellow fever vaccination. Failure to do so may lead to on-the-spot immunization.
