Mauritius, the Indian Ocean island nation is all set to open for international tourists from 15 July 2021. The island is planning to open in a phased manner during 2021 and the first phase, from 15 July to 30 September 2021, will enable vaccinated travelers to enjoy a resort holiday on the island.
International tourists will be able to enjoy facilities within their chosen resort premises, including the swimming pool and beach.
If guests stay over 14 days and have negative PCR tests during their stay in the resort, they will be able to explore the island’s attractions.
However, for shorter stays, they may leave the resort earlier and travel back home.
Travelers to Mauritius aged 18 years or over must be 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.
Travelers will also have an RT-PCR test on arrival at the airport in Mauritius and on the day 7 and 14 of their resort holiday, as applicable.
For Phase 2, from the 1st of October 2021, vaccinated travelers will be allowed entry without restrictions upon the presentation of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours before departure.
Unvaccinated travelers will be subject to 14 days in-room quarantine for both Phases 1 and 2 until further notice.
The announcement follows the acceleration of the vaccination campaign and the progress made towards herd immunity by the end of September.
Frontlines of the tourism industry were prioritized during the vaccine rollout. This enables a prompt and safe restart of the Mauritius tourism industry.
