Mauritius expands reopening for non-vaccinated travellers

Mauritius is opening in phases starting from 15 July and has now extended to opening phase through 30 September to non-vaccinated travellers.

Visitors who have not been fully vaccinated are required to book a 14-night in-room quarantine stay in one of Mauritius' designated quarantine hotels before departure.

Visitors will stay in their room during this time and meals will be delivered to them.

A quarantine hotel stay is only available for non-vaccinated international visitors and returning Mauritian nationals and can book through a tour operator, travel agent or directly with the hotel.

A full list of approved quarantine hotels and entry requirements are available at www.mauritiusnow.com

Mauritius last week announced its reopening and detailed protocols for fully-vaccinated arrivals.

They can enjoy 14-day 'resort bubble' holiday at certified hotel resorts and are able to enjoy all in-resort facilities including the swimming pool and beach.

Guests can stay any length of time but will only be able to explore outside the resort after completing a 14-day stay and testing negative for Covid.

All travellers will undergo a PCR test before departure and a negative result is required to travel to the island.

Travellers will also undergo a PCR test on arrival at the airport in Mauritius, on day 7 and 14 of their resort bubble or quarantine hotel.

Government officials said they expect to reach herd immunity by the end of September.

Tourism employees were prioritised during the vaccine rollout.

Air Mauritius, Emirates are other global airlines will add additional flight capacity from 15 July 2021 which will increase in the lead up to the full reopening of 1 October 2021.
