I am from Mauritius and I am planning a trip to Finland. I am getting mixed answers when searching, so would like to know for sure if Mauritian citizens need a visa to visit Finland or not.

My stay will be around a week or two and I'll be flying in from London.


Finland is part of the Schengen Area, so the visa policy of the Schengen Area applies.

Mauritius is on the “Annex II” list of countries which are visa-exempt, so citizens of Mauritius are allowed to enter the Schengen Area without a visa for tourism/business. There is a slight difference compared to the general 90/180 rule, but in your case it is not relevant, you can just go to Finland without worry.

This can also be check using Timatic, the tool used by airlines to determine what documentation is needed.

For Mauritius nationals visiting Finland, the results are:

Passport required.

  • Passports and other documents accepted for entry must be valid for a minimum of 3 months beyond the period of intended stay.

Visa required, except for Nationals of Mauritius for a maximum stay of 3 months. (SEE NOTE 56246).

NOTE 56246: The maximum stay is granted within 6 months.
