Applying For Mauritius Tourist Visit Visa from Paris

Mauritius used to be a colony of France before it was overtaken by the British colonial power in 1810. With its independence in 1968, this small island nation in the Indian Ocean has grown into a popular tourist destination with French tourists. Beaches that include Grand Bay and Pereybere are popular because of shopping, nightlife and shoreline. Other attractions include national parks that feature many plants and animals indigenous to the area. However, in order to get a chance to interact with all these great sights, French visitors will need to get in touch with the Mauritius High Commission in Paris.
