Mauritius offers COVID vaccine to long-term VISA holders

Published on : Wednesday, March 10, 2021

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 offering long-term visitor visas free of charge and a free COVID-19 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 the offer and is working across the tourism sector to promote take-up.
