Staying healthy in Mauritius: Here’s what you need to know

Mauritius prides itself on having a well-developed healthcare system. Here's what travelers should know.

Make sure to stay updated on routine vaccines

  • Travelers are advised to be current on routine vaccinations such as measles-mumps-rubella (MMR), diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis, varicella (chickenpox), polio, and your yearly flu shot.

  • Depending on your travel plans, vaccinations for hepatitis A, hepatitis B, typhoid, and rabies may be recommended.

  • Keep updated with Mauritius's COVID-19 requirements, such as quarantine, testing, or vaccine certificates, through your airline or the Mauritius government website.

Medical facilities

  • You can find hospitals and clinics equipped with modern facilities, especially in urban areas and major cities.

  • While public healthcare is available to all, visitors might prefer private medical facilities for faster service and more comfortable amenities. However, this comes at a higher cost.

  • Pharmacies are widely available, and most common medications can be purchased over the counter. It’s advisable to carry a prescription for any specialized medication you might need during your stay.

Health insurance

We’d always recommend taking out health insurance before you travel anywhere from any destination.

Contact your insurance provider before traveling to make sure you have the right level of coverage.

Other things to consider:

  • Trip cancellation, delay, and interruption benefits.

  • Medical expenses and medical evacuation benefits.

  • Baggage coverage.

Things to be aware of when visiting Mauritius

Keep an extra eye on the following to keep healthy and safe during your trip to Mauritius:

1. Dengue fever: This mosquito-borne disease is present in Mauritius. There's no vaccine available for travelers, so the best prevention is to avoid mosquito bites by using repellent and wearing protective clothing.

2. Water safety: Tap water is generally safe to drink in urban areas, but it’s advisable to drink bottled or filtered water in remote areas.

3. Sun protection: Mauritius has a tropical climate. Protect yourself from the sun's harmful rays by using sunscreen, wearing hats, and staying hydrated.

Medication for personal use

Follow these tips to bring into Mauritius some over-the-counter medicines:

  • Declare all medications: Report all medication for personal use to customs authorities.

  • Original packaging: Always keep medicines in their original containers and in transparent bags in your hand luggage.

  • Prescription or doctor's letter: Present the medical prescription issued by your doctor or other competent authority, in English.

  • Check for restrictions: Call Mauritius's embassy to verify that all of your prescriptions are legal to bring with you.

  • Quantity aligned with itinerary: Bring only a reasonable quantity that aligns with the duration of your stay to avoid complications.
