Entry rules in response to coronavirus (COVID-19)

Entry to Mauritania

International flights to and from Mauritania are operating.

On 31 March 2023, the Mauritanian authorities removed the requirement for travellers arriving into Mauritania to present a negative PCR test and/or proof of vaccination against COVID-19.

Travellers leaving Mauritania do not have to show a negative PCR test and/or proof of vaccination against COVID-19, unless this is a requirement of the country to which you are travelling.

Regular entry requirements


You need a visa to enter Mauritania. Visas are issued on arrival. The current cost is €55 (euros) or $60 (US dollars) in cash only. The visa issuing process at the border can take several hours. The Mauritanian Embassy in London does not issue visas.

Passport validity

Your passport should be valid for a minimum period of 6 months from the date of entry into Mauritania.

Yellow fever certificate requirements

Check whether you need a yellow fever certificate by visiting the National Travel Health Network and Centre’s TravelHealthPro website.
