Goods for Export & Return
Travellers are not required to declare goods which are:
- physically in their possession before commencing an overseas trip, and
- not purchased duty free in Mauritius at the time of departure.
If you are concerned that the possession of exported goods might impact on your duty-free entitlements, carry some form of documentation which proves previous ownership to avoid any potential misunderstanding when re-entering Mauritius.
You may declare your identifiable goods (goods with serial numbers, marks and numbers e.g. photographic equipment, laptop etc) in a customs office (arrival or departure) so as not to pay duty and VAT on these goods when you come back to Mauritius. A customs officer will record the particulars of your goods and on your return the goods will be examined and cleared.
