Mauritius No Longer On France Scarlet List | 2021

December 8, 2021


French Government Removes Mauritius From The Scarlet List

Mauritian Tourism Industry Update – Joint Statement Public & Private

The Mauritian tourism industry welcomes the decision by the French government to remove Mauritius from its list of “scarlet” destinations, just a few days after its classification as part of this list.

We wish to thank the French Ambassador, Her Excellency Florence Caussé-Tissier, whose intervention was significant, for her support.

Following tonight’s announcement regarding the removal of Mauritius island from the “scarlet” destinations list, travel to Mauritius from France is resumed for people vaccinated with an EMA-approved vaccine:

  • Pfizer / Comirnaty
  • Moderna
  • AstraZeneca / Vaxzeria / Covishield
  • Janssen

*Restrictions are, however, applicable to non-vaccinated travellers.

Our priority remains the safety and security of our residents and tourists, so the established rigorous arrival protocols related to COVID-19 remain in force. All visitors coming to Mauritius are required to be vaccinated, and to undergo PCR testing within 72 hours prior to travel, on arrival and in the days following.

Two months after the reopening of our borders, the tourism industry has come through some significant challenges. The entire value chain is cooperating together to guarantee that the Mauritian tourism industry recovers and flourishes again. This includes airlines, hotels, restaurants, attractions, tour operators, taxis, and much more.
