FAQ

FORMALITIES & LOCAL LIFE

What formalities do I need to commit to when coming to Mauritius for my studies?

You need to have your papers right; valid passport with at least six months validity before expiry. You should also make sure to have a confirmation letter from a university, registered with the Tertiary Education Commission of Mauritius. At this point, a Student Visa will be required by the Mauritian Passport and Immigration Office and by the University at which you enrolled.

You can visit the local government’s website at www.govmu.org for more information on visa application.

Note: It is recommended that you keep a soft copy of all your official documents for administrative purposes. 

Do I need to hold any kind of insurance in Mauritius?

If you are not covered for medical expenses outside of your home country, we strongly advise you to contract one to cover for your health needs during your studies. The medical insurance should cover a minimum of outpatient medical expenses, repatriation and liability. Local insurance companies are, among others; Mauritius Union, Anglo-Mauritius Assurance, Sicom, Swan Insurance and Mauritian Eagle.

Do I need any specific vaccines to study in Mauritius?

There are no mandatory vaccinations requested to travel to Mauritius.

Which airlines fly to Mauritius?

We suggest you book your own flight tickets. A number of airlines do fly to Mauritius from several destinations around the world, including Air Mauritius, Air France, British Airways, Emirates and Air Austral.

How much luggage am I entitled to?

You must pay special attention to the information on your ticket as to how much each airline allows you to carry. However, airlines normally allow between 20 and 30 kg, with an additional cost for excess. Some airlines allow for student baggage allowance.
