Put Mauritius on your list of places to visit: This summer, the island nation opens its borders to vaccinated visitors.

Following the reopening of Phuket on July 1st under the ‘Phuket Sandbox’ scheme, Mauritius has announced that vaccinated international visitors will be welcomed beginning in mid-July. The tourism bureau announced the island nation’s gradual reopening, with the first phase running from July 15 to September 30. During this time, vaccinated tourists must stay in a certified Covid-19 safe hotel for 14 days, during which they can use the hotel’s facilities and go to the beach.


Travellers will be subject to a PCR test at the airport on their arrival, and depending on the length of stay, they will also be required to do tests on Day 7 and Day 14. If they test negative on Day 14, they are free to explore the rest of the country, which is known for its white-sand beaches, sparkling sapphire waters, and rugged mountains great for hiking.


Alternatively, guests can visit for less than 14 days but they’re only allowed to roam within the premises of the hotel or resort. Mauritius, located on the southeast coast of the African continent, has a fantastic selection of luxury resorts including stalwarts such as Constance Belle Mare Plage and the One&Only Le Saint Géran, as well as brands such as The Residence, Lux*, Four Seasons, St. Regis, The Oberoi and more.


So even if you’re considering a stay shorter than two weeks, it would be well worth a dream beach holiday.


From October 1, Mauritius will progress to a full reopening where it will allow all vaccinated travellers to enter the country provided they present a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of departure. They can book a Covid-19 safe hotel as well as explore the island as they please—venture on various wildlife excursions and taste authentic Mauritian cuisine, which is a mix of African, Chinese, European as well as Indian influences.


Unvaccinated travellers are also allowed into the country, but they must first do a 14-day quarantine at an official hotel. There will be PCR tests on Day 7 and Day 14; a negative result on the latter gives them licence to transfer to a different hotel and explore the rest of the island.
