He is delighted that the island will be able to restart its long-standing relationship after an 18-month ban on travel.

Authorised commercial flights from South Africa to Mauritius will commence on 01 October 2021 namely by Air Mauritius, Comair South Africa, SAA and Fly Safair.

From 01 October 2021, fully vaccinated travellers from South Africa, will be allowed to stay at any hotel, resort or accommodation of their choice and move freely around the island.
