Security and health
The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s Smartraveller site provides advice for business travellers and tourists going to Mauritius. This is regularly updated, and should be checked before planning travel.
It is strongly recommended that Australian travellers take out comprehensive travel insurance that will cover any overseas medical costs, before their departure. They should confirm that their insurance covers them for the whole time they will be away and check what circumstances and activities are / are not included in their policy.
It is also recommended that Australian travellers consult Smartraveller to provide greater protection in case of an emergency.
The level of personal security in Mauritius is good, as long as suitable precautions are taken. In the case of an emergency, the following numbers can be used:
- Ambulance: 114
- Fire Services: 995 or 115
- Police: 999 or 112
