You will need to apply for a plant import permit first and present that to customs when you go collecting your things. The permit is obtained from the Ministry of Agriculture and costs around Rs50.

Roses are subjected to strict patents, not necessary in Mauritius, but from the original breeders. So many places will not ship outside their country territory.
