The Republic of Mauritius will fully reopen its borders on October 1 to vaccinated international travelers. Visitors who present a negative PCR test taken 72 hours before their departure can enjoy the various outdoor activities Mauritius has to offer, such as hiking, kite surfing, water sports, and world-renowned beaches.

Currently, vaccinated guests spend 14 days in a special ‘resort bubble’. Unvaccinated travelers must complete a 14-day quarantine period in a designated quarantine hotel.

The approved Covid-19 safe resorts are available at:
