Bringing Pets to Mauritius

To import a dog or cat into Mauritius, the animal and the owner are subject to the terms and conditions. These terms and conditions include:

the animals must be accompanied by a Veterinary Health Certificate issued within 10 hours prior to travel by a competent veterinary authority in the country in which the animal last resided in the country of origin since birth – the veterinarian must certify that the animal is free from contagious diseases and has been vaccinated for rabies;

the animals shall not be landed without the approval of the Veterinary Officer of Mauritius as the Veterinary Officer must be notified of time of arrival and port of entry at least 48 hours prior to arrival time.

Mauritius requires that you apply for an Import Permit at least three months prior to arrival.

Cats and dogs arriving from a country with a low incidence of rabies will be quarantined for six months. All expenses are charged to the owner. During quarantine, only adult owners may check on dogs and cats daily at fixed hours. The quarantine kennels, at Reduit about seven miles from downtown Port Louis, are modern, clean, and well operated, with a Government veterinarian in daily attendance.

Pets arriving from a country with a high incidence of rabies are not allowed to enter Mauritius under any circumstances.
