Entry requirements La Reunion

To enter the country, citizens of the European Union only need a valid passport or identity card.

Medizinische Vorbereitung La Reunion

There is no malaria on La Réunion and no vaccination is required. Proof of cholera and yellow fever vaccination is only necessary if you are entering from an infected area. The health services are subject to the French throughout the island.

Climate / Travel time La Reunion

Basically, the climate on Réunion is tropical - hot and humid with a rainy season from November to April, when it gets quite muggy. Then it is quite possible that cyclones with a lot of wind, precipitation, and high swell hit the island. But also in the other, drier months between May and October, there are frequent rainfalls.
However, there are many different microclimates on the island and the weather can change completely within a few kilometers. While the west coast with up to 2,000 hours of sunshine per year lies in the rain shadow of the mountains, is relatively dry, and partly has a steppe climate, the east coast is directly exposed to the trade winds that bring rain. This is why it is one of the rainiest regions in the world.
The average temperature on the coast in the southern summer (December to March) is 30 °C. In the southern winter, the average temperature is 20 °C. As everywhere in the tropics, there are only slight differences between day and night temperatures. On the west side of the island, it is generally a little warmer than on the east. In the mountains, however, the average temperature is only 15 °C. In July/August there are more often minus degrees and snow. The mountainous regions often form fields of fog and clouds.
Even in the cooler months, the water temperatures are still 23 to 24 °C, so that you can spend a bathing vacation on Reunion all year round.

Entry requirements: Mauritius

No visa is required for a tourist stay. German and Luxembourg nationals only need a passport for entry into Mauritius, which is valid beyond the date of departure. We recommend that the passport is valid for at least six months after departure and that there are at least two free pages per country of official entry. Please make sure that there are enough free pages, especially for country combinations and multiple entries.
A valid vaccination against yellow fever is required for all travelers older than 12 months and entering from a yellow fever endemic area. This also applies to transit stays there which exceed 12 hours.
Each child requires a separate identification document. The German child ID is recognized, but a photograph is required.
Underage travelers who have a different last name than the accompanying parent must carry a birth certificate upon entry. Since June 1st, 2015 new entry regulations for minors, also accompanied by their parents, apply in South Africa. If you are traveling to Mauritius via South Africa, please note our information for South Africa.
Information without guarantee.

Medical preparation: Mauritius

No vaccination is required for direct entry from Germany.
Mauritius is free of yellow fever and malaria. Mauritius is also free of cicavirus. The German Foreign Office recommends that the standard vaccinations against tetanus, diphtheria, whooping cough (pertussis), if necessary also against polio, mumps, measles, rubella (MMR), pneumococcus, and influenza should be checked and refreshed if necessary. Vaccinations against hepatitis A are recommended as travel vaccinations. Please discuss this with your family doctor or the tropical institute.
Information without guarantee.

Weather / Travel time: Mauritius

The climate is tropical with two seasons: The warm and rainy summer from November to April and the dry and somewhat cooler winter from May to October. The average temperature is 23.3°C on the coast and 19.4°C at high altitudes, but there is a relatively high humidity of 70% on the coast and 90% in the mountains. The best time to travel is from April to June and September to November, when it is dry and sunny but not too hot. Cyclones can occur on Mauritius from November to May.
