Travel protocols for vaccinated travellers in Mauritius are being further relaxed., the tourism board has announced.
From Sept. 1, vaccinated guests are required to spend seven 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.
According to the the latest stats, the percentage of vaccinated people are as follows:
- First dose/total population: 63%
- Fully vaccinated/total population: 56%
“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," said Arvind Bundhun, director of MTPA.
The Mauritian government took the decision in January to prioritize 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.
