Press Release   24 August 2021

With the successful  vaccination  rollout,  travel  protocols  for  vaccinated  travelers  are  being further relaxed. As from 1st September, vaccinated guests  would spend only 7 days in a special ´resort bubble´ hotel before going out to discover more of the Indian Ocean paradise.

The approved Covid-19 safe resorts are available at: www.mauritiusnow.com The percentage of vaccinated people are as follows:

First dose/total population: 63% 

Fully vaccinated/total population: 56%

Arvind Bundhun, Director of MTPA, said: "This is a major leap towards the full reopening of its borders on 1st October, when vaccinated international travellers will be welcomed in without restrictions. Visitors who present a negative PCR test taken in the  72  hours  prior  to embarkation will be able to explore the island freely from the moment they arrive".

The Mauritian government took the decision  in January  to prioritise tourism  workers  and hotel staff in  the  vaccine  rollout  to  ensure  visitors  will  be  welcomed  into   a   safe   and   secure environment in Mauritius.

Airline capacity from Europe and the Middle East is currently provided by Air Mauritius, Emirates, Turkish Airlines, Air France, Kenya Airways and British Airways.

International visitors can currently book their ´resort bubble´ holidays either via tour operators  or directly  with  the  hotels.  Unvaccinated  travellers  are   required   to   complete   a   14-day quarantine period in a designated quarantine hotel.

For full details of entry requirements and safety protocols, visit www.mauritiusnow.com which is currently being updated following this major decision.

 

As from 1st October onwards

Unvaccinated Travellers

  • Book a 14-day quarantine including meals and transfers in an officially designated hotel.
  • You will be required to stay in your hotel room for 14 days and meals will be delivered to your room
  • You will undergo a PCR test on arrival day and on days 7 and 14
  • After a negative PCR test on day 14, you can freely explore the island and move to a different accommodation or go home.

 

We will relay related information from the relevant authorities as the situation evolves, and hope to welcome you to our beautiful Mauritius soon.
