Pet Relocation to Mauritius


Bringing Pets to Mauritius; Owners wishing to bring their pets to Mauritius must apply to the Veterinary Department, Ministry of Agriculture, Reduit for an import permit, which is required before pets arrive in Mauritius. Also the Ministry of Agriculture must be notified of the date of the animal’s arrival, so an officer can be at the airport. Dogs and cats must undergo a 6-month quarantine in Government kennels from the date of their arrival. All expenses are charged to the owner. During quarantine, only adult owners may visit their dogs and cats daily at fixed hours. The quarantine kennels, at Reduit about 7 miles from downtown Port Louis, are modern, clean, and well operated, with a Government veterinarian in daily attendance. Contact the Embassy of Mauritius for current requirements about moving pets to their country.
