Tourism arrivals in Mauritius on rise in first quarter

The Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority (MTPA) is gearing up for a busy winter season as the island records a surge in tourism arrivals during the first quarter of 2022.

Citing recent figures from the Central Statistics Office of Mauritius, MTPA authorities said more than 160,000 tourists have already visited the island in the first quarter of 2022.

Authorities expect tourist numbers to increase substantially over the coming weeks for travellers from the Gulf in particular, as travel restrictions are further eased, and its tailor-made holidays with its partners at dnata Travel continue to grow in popularity.

The requirement for pre-departure PCR testing has been lifted.

Emily Jenkins, General Manager of dnata Travel Leisure, added: “With demand for travel at a high, Mauritius has quickly entered dnata Travel’s top five most booked international holiday destinations for GCC travellers. We predict this trend will only continue, as travel restrictions ease, while travellers continue to choose Mauritius and make the most of our unmissable travel offers with Mauritius Tourism.”
