Mauritius lifts travel ban for South Africa

Published

on

South Africans can now travel to Mauritius on authorised commercial flights without first having to spend fifteen (15) days outside the country.

“We welcome the decision by the Mauritian government. South Africa remains a proximity and
priority market for tourism on the island. We are delighted that we will be able to restart our
long-standing relationship after an 18-month ban on travel,” Arvind Bundhun, Director of
the Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority (MTPA), said on the organisation’s website.

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

From October 1, 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.

Unvaccinated travellers will have to undergo 14 days quarantine in a state designated
quarantine facility.

“Mauritius has worked hard to develop and implement protocols that will keep both travellers
and citizens as safe as possible from Covid-19 and the effects of the pandemic. Travellers can
be assured of Government’s commitment to the health and safety of all travellers,” Bundhun said.

“South Africans have been longing for the Mauritius they know and love, from white sandy
beaches and clear blue seas and skies, to our warm and friendly people, and so much more.
Mauritius is ready and we can’t wait to welcome South Africans back to our beautiful
country,” he added.
