The government of Mauritius has expanded its Covid-19 vaccination programme to include all citizens, residents and long-term international visitors over the age of 18.
Visitors holding the Premium Visa as well as residents of Mauritius holding a Work Permit, Residence Permit or Occupational Permit are eligible to receive their vaccinations free of charge.
Mauritius is the only country in the world, which offers long-term visitor visas free of charge and a free Covid vaccine to holders of these visas. The expanded vaccination programme is part of the national campaign to continue keeping Mauritius Covid-secure and to allow the full reopening of international borders once herd immunity is reached.
Mauritius is using the Oxford/AstraZeneca Covishield vaccine manufactured by the Serum Institute of India. MTPA are encouraging all those eligible to accept this offer and is working across the tourism sector to promote take-up.
Mauritius’ Premium Visa allows international visitors to stay in Mauritius for up to 12 months to work remotely, retire or simply enjoy a longer holiday. The visa is renewable.
Applications for the Premium Visa are open to those currently in Mauritius on short-stay visas and those based internationally who wish to relocate to Mauritius for the long term.
