Quarantine procedures following easing of restrictions for travel to Mauritius

Mauritius has successfully eliminated SARS-CoV-2, and is taking careful precautions to avoid importing the virus. So, while tourism is important to the island nation’s economy, they are taking it slowly and only opening the borders for Mauritian nationals, residents and tourists travelling to Mauritius for long stays.

Quarantine regulations

Passengers will have to undergo a PCR (polymerise chain reaction) test no more than five days prior to travel, and will then have to spend 14 days in quarantine at an officially approved establishment.

Travel packages are only available online, 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.

Booking and travelling process

In order to facilitate the sanitation and quarantine process, the Mauritian Tourism Promotion Authority (MTPA) has set up a centralised booking platform that links airline and hotel sites. Flights may also be booked directly with Air Mauritius and Emirates, which are the only airlines flying in at present.

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.

Bottom line

With a 14-day quarantine, it’s clearly not really worth flying to Mauritius for a short holiday but, if you have invested in property in Mauritius, or have planned to immigrate there, now you can. Or even if you are just thinking of investing, you can visit for a look around, but you would need to plan to stay for at least a month or two to make it worthwhile.
