As the global tourist sector continues to recover from the epidemic, Mauritius has modified its Covid-19 travel admission criteria for overseas travelers. Foreign visitors who have received all of their vaccinations are no longer required to have a negative Covid-19 test before traveling to the Indian Ocean location.
Previously, travelers were required to provide proof of a negative PCR test performed within 72 hours of their departure. Upon arrival, however, Covid-19 testing will continue to be required.
Arriving non-vaccinated passengers will be held in quarantine for seven days in “accommodation of your choosing.”
According to the Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office, children aged 17 and under who are traveling with a parent or guardian do not need to produce evidence of vaccination in order to enter Mauritius with them (FCDO).
“We are glad that the Ministry of Health and Wellness has revised the sanitary procedure for tourists to Mauritius,” said Arvind Bundhun, head of the Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority.
“This automatically makes the process of traveling to Mauritius more smoother and more streamlined.” As demand for travel to Mauritius continues to grow, we anticipate an increase in tourist numbers in the coming months. “
Malaysia was the most recent country to announce intentions to lift travel restrictions, following in the footsteps of Saudi Arabia, Jamaica, the Maldives, Ireland, Saint Lucia, Qatar, and other countries in recent days, including the United Arab Emirates.
