Mauritius reduces the quarantine period for vaccinated travelers from 1st September 2021
Following the successful national vaccination program, travel protocols have been reduced.
As of the 1st of September, vaccinated guests would only spend 7 days inside ‘Resort bubble’ hotels before being able to move around the island freely to discover its beauty.

Below is the percentage of people vaccinated in Mauritius as of 24 August 2021:
first dose: 63% fully vaccinated: 56%
The Director of the MTPA, Mr. Arvind Bundhun said that “This is a major leap towards the full reopening of its borders on 1st October, when vaccinated international travelers 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”.
The Mauritian Government has since January 2021 given priority to tourism workers and hotel staff for vaccination to ensure that visitors of the island are welcome in a safe and secure environment.
Flights from Europe and the Middle East are currently provided by Air Mauritius, Emirates, Turkish Airlines, Air France, Kenya Airways and British Airways.
Travellers can now book their ‘resort bubble’ holidays with licensed tour operators or directly with the hotels. Unvaccinated travellers are required to complete a 14-day quarantine at designated hotels and resorts.
