When shooting in Mauritius, it is important to consider if the location is situated in a public or private area in order to apply for all the necessary scouting, authorisations and permits in advance. There are rules and regulations which are applicable when shooting in restricted or security areas such as the Airport or the Harbour, hence will require more time to acquire necessary authorisation.
