Mauritius is among the best locations for weddings and honeymoons thanks to its stunning scenery, warm tropical climate and the friendly hospitality of the Mauritian people. Most hotels offer extensive wedding and honeymoon packages and have their own experienced wedding coordinators to organise every last detail of the wedding. Whether intimate or large events of up to 800 guests, professional teams will work their magic. Idyllic settings and customised service are the principal ingredients of the wonderfully romantic and successful Mauritian formula. No wonder the island stands out as a preferred destination to celebrate love.
Government provides various facilities to organisers of weddings so as to ensure that events are organised in the best possible conditions.
These facilities are extended to the promoters and wedding planners given that certain conditions are met, such as:
(i) there should be a minimum group size of 100 tourists/foreign participants; and
(ii) a minimum of 2 nights stay per passenger for the entire group in a hotel should be confirmed.
Accordingly, a list of the foreign participants and a confirmation from the hotel whereby they are all staying should be submitted to the Ministry of Tourism for consideration.
Facilities which are extended:
- Visa requirements : issue of visa arrival to passengers requiring visa prior to travel
- Facilitation of bulk purchase of alcoholic products
- Fast track for clearance at the airport. Prompt channelling of passengers through dedicated Passport & Immigration Counter at the airport with display banner
