Sumary of Mauritius to ease travel restrictions for double-jabbed travellers from September:
- From September, fully vaccinated travellers visiting Mauritius will only have to quarantine for one week after arrival in the country.
- The change in rules for double-jabbed visitors kicks in from 1 September – from when single- and non-vaccinated travellers must still quarantine for the full two weeks.
- The news comes ahead of a more dramatic lift of restrictions from 1 October, when fully-vaccinated visitors arriving with a negative PCR test result – taken within the previous 72 hours – will be able to “explore the island freely from the moment they arrive”, said Arvind Bundhun, the director of the Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority (MTPA).
- Mauritius has been open to vaccinated tourists since 15 July, when it first piloted the resort bubble method of containing and tracking visitors.
- “Mauritius is delighted to be welcoming international visitors from July 15 with our 14 unique resort bubbles that allow international visitors to enjoy a safe and secure holiday experience,” said Nilen Vencadasmy, chairman of the MTPA, at the time.
