Mauritius has announced the phased easing of travel restrictions. As from 01 October 2020, borders will be open to Mauritian nationals, residents and tourists travelling to Mauritius for long stays.
Passengers will have to undergo a PCR test 7 days prior to travel. Upon arrival in Mauritius, a 14-day quarantine will be mandatory at an establishment approved by the authorities.
A travel package will be made available online for passengers and will include:
- Accommodation, on a full-board basis, for the 14-day quarantine.
- Transfer from the airport to the hotel.
- Health costs including mandatory PCR tests.
To facilitate the process, a centralised booking platform, linking to airline and hotel sites, is being set up on the MTPA website at https://booking.mymauritius.travel and will be operational as from 20 September 2020.
Air Mauritius and Emirates Airlines are scheduling regular flights connecting Mauritius to designated destinations. Flights may also be booked at the retail outlets, call centres and the websites of the airlines.
The sanitary safety of travellers and of the Mauritian public is a topmost priority. Protocols following international best practice will be in force on board the aircraft, at the airport, for airport transfers, at quarantine locations and thereafter at hotels and all other public places.
