Get your bags packed and be ready as Mauritius has announced that it will be reopening to international travellers on 15th July 2021.
The island country will be reopening in two phases during 2021. The 1st phase, from 15th July 2021 to 30th September 2021, will enable vaccinated travellers to enjoy a resort holiday on the island.
Vaccinated travellers will be able to enjoy all the facilities within their chosen pre-approved and government certified COVID-19 safe hotel, including the swimming pool and beach. A list of approved hotels will be announced on 20th June 2021.
Vaccinated travellers will have to undergo COVID-19 RT-PCR tests on the day of their arrival, on day 7 and finally on day 14. If guests stay over 14 days and have negative PCR tests during their stay in the resort, they will be free to explore the island’s attractions.
Travellers planning a shorter stay (less than 14 days), they won’t be able to leave the hotel or explore the destination. Furthermore, travellers aged 18 years or older must fully vaccinated against COVID-19. They must undergo a PCR test between 5 and 7 days before departure and a negative result is required to travel to the island.
In 2nd phase, from 1st October 2021, vaccinated travellers will be allowed entry without restrictions upon presentation of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours before departure. Unvaccinated travellers will be subject to 14 days in-room quarantine for both Phases 1 and 2 until further notice.
