Expectant mothers can travel in comfort with Air Mauritius as we keep your safety and that of your unborn child in mind.


The pregnancy period is an exciting and emotional one, and we know how important it is for expectant mothers to feel comfortable and relaxed. This page provides some key information to help expectant mothers plan and prepare for their trip.

Expectant mothers with normal pregnancies may travel on Air Mauritius up until their 28th week of pregnancy, unless otherwise advised by their doctors.

  • For pregnancies beyond 28 weeks or with complications, you need to complete the Air Mauritius Medical Certificate For Fitness (MEDIF), duly signed by a registered gynecologist / obstetrician and submitted for approval by the airline's medical doctor. Passengers who are required to fill in a MEDIF form will not be able to purchase their tickets online.
  • Please contact our 24/7 Reservation team at [email protected] for your booking. Do inform us of your travel plans at least 72 hours before departure, to allow sufficient time to process your medical clearance.

  • Further, some authorities (for example, Malaysian authorities) refuse entry to foreign women with advanced pregnancies beyond six months (equivalent to the end of week 27 of your pregnancy), except if they are in transit for less than 72 hours, with no extensions allowed.  

  • While we try our utmost to provide you with all information in advance, it is recommended you check with the concerned authorities of the countries you intend to visit prior to your travel.
