All international flights land at Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport (known as SSR Airport), situated 26 miles from capital Port Louis. Air Mauritius operates around 30 weekly flights to and from most major European cities, including 15 combined flights with Air France to and from Paris. British Airways operates four weekly flights from London, and Emirates also services the island.
A valid passport and a return or onward flight ticket are required. On arrival, a visitor’s visa is issued, and this will cover a stay on the island of up to one month. If you need an extension, head to the Passport and Immigration Office, Sterling House, 11-19 Lislet Geoffroy Street, Port-Louis, (www.gov.mu; 230/210-9312).
Immunizations & other health issues
Most travelers will not need to organize immunizations before a trip to Mauritius, although anyone planning to enter a yellow fever zone up to six days before their date of arrival, should make sure they are vaccinated in advance.
