Continue your adventure without a passport in Mauritius

Good news for holidaymakers from Reunion Island: the measure allowing entry to Mauritius with a valid identity card, known as “Mauritius without a passport”, has been extended for a further year. Initially due to expire on June 30, 2024, the initiative has been extended to June 30, 2025. This is according to a communication from the Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority dated April 22, 2024.

This extension maintains the ease of access to Mauritius for travelers from Reunion Island, who can still take advantage of this opportunity without needing a passport; a simple identity card will suffice. But also aims at maintaining and strengthening ties between the two Indian Ocean islands, as well as facilitating cultural, tourist and economic exchanges.

The Mauritian authorities are delighted with this extension, which demonstrates their ongoing commitment to promoting regional mobility and strengthening relations with La Réunion.

Facilitating exchanges between Mauritius and Reunion

The “Mauritius without a passport” scheme allows people from Réunion to travel to the island only with their valid identity card. Since its introduction, this measure has met with undeniable success.

The extension of the “Mauritius without passport” measure provides an additional opportunity for Réunionese tour operators. They could offer attractive tourist packages including trips to Mauritius without the hassle of obtaining a passport.

The Mauritian authorities are delighted with this extension. This demonstrates their ongoing commitment to promoting regional mobility and strengthening relations with Réunion.

Mauritius without a passport :

To benefit from this measure, certain conditions must be met. You need :

  • Be a French national residing on Reunion Island and traveling from Reunion Island for vacation purposes.
  • A minimum 2-night stay in Mauritius.
  • Meet the usual immigration requirements in terms of round-trip air tickets and confirmed accommodation arrangements.
  • On arrival, present a valid French identity card instead of a passport to immigration officers at the port of entry. The latter will issue an “entry permit”.

By extending this measure, Mauritius is further consolidating the already strong ties between the two islands and their residents.
