As of October, Mauritius’ borders will be reopened to foreigners again, according to timesofindia.indiatimes.com. Travelers who are fully vaccinated and have been looking forward to visiting Mauritius for a long time should rejoice.
Anyone visiting the island nation 72 hours prior to their departure with a valid PCR negative RT-PCR report will be able to explore the island without any restrictions. On October 1, 2021, the rule will go into effect.
In spite of the partial opening of the island nation in mid-July, only vaccinated visitors who are willing to spend at least 14 days in a’resort bubble’ are allowed to visit for now.
Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority (MTPA) Director Arvind Bundhun commented on this, saying, “We are thrilled to see the world opening up for travel once more.” In addition, he said that since the middle of July, the island nation has been welcoming international visitors.
Additionally, he said the next phase of reopening borders will take place on October 1, when vaccinated visitors will be free to explore the island without any restrictions from the moment of their arrival until they leave the island. As well, he said that the safety and security of Mauritius’s citizens and residents will always be a priority for him.
