South Africa’s Department of International Relations and Cooperation has said it was disappointed that Mauritius has also turned its back on South African travellers.

Mauritius has joined a growing list of countries that have temporarily banned flights from SA and several southern African nations following the detection of the Omicron COVID-19 variant.

On Sunday, South African citizens – who were flying to Mauritius when the ban was imposed – were forced to quarantine on arrival.

“They have decided to apply further arrival restrictions on flights arriving from South Africa with immediate effect,” the department’s Clayson Monyela was cited as telling EastCoast Radio.

“So, as of Sunday and further notice, there will be no incoming passengers on flights connecting from South Africa to Mauritius. We think it is important as South Africans to know this, so if you are planning to travel to the country might have to look at other options.”

South African authorities have put task teams on 24-hour standby at embassies to assist South Africans stranded abroad.
