As from today, 15 July 2021, Mauritius has opened its borders to international travellers, both vaccinated and non-vaccinated.

Phase 1 of reopening of the borders for the Indian Ocean Island, which runs from today until 30 September 2021, allows vaccinated guests to stay in one of 14 chosen “resort bubbles”.

Holidaymakers will be able to enjoy facilities within their chosen hotel including the swimming pool and beach.

If guests stay for 14 days and have negative PCR tests during their stay in the resort, they will then be able to leave the hotel and travel around the island freely for the rest of their stay, exploring the island’s many attractions.

Here’s a list of the 14 resorts vaccinated travellers can stay:

  • Constance Belle Mare Plage – 5 Star
  • Constance Prince Maurice – 5 Star Luxury
  • Long Beach Mauritius – 5 Star
  • LUX Grand Gaube – 5 Star
  • Maradiva Villas Resort & Spa – 5 Star Luxury
  • Sugar Beach Resort & Spa – 5 Star
  • Trou Aux Biches Beachcomber Resort & Spa – 5 Star
  • Tamarina Golf & Spa – 4 Star
  • Tamassa – 4 Star
  • Veranda Pointe aux Biches Hotel & Spa – 4 Star
  • Victoria Beachcomber Resort & Spa – 4 Star Superior
  • Zilwa Attitude – 4 Star
  • Tropical Attitude – 3 Star Superior
  • Les Cocotiers – 2 Star

Air Mauritius and other global airlines will add additional flight capacity from 15 July 2021 which will increase in the lead up to the full reopening of 1 October 2021.

Phase 2 of the reopening of the borders, which takes place on 1 October 2021, will allow vaccinated travellers to enter Mauritius without restrictions upon presentation of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours before departure.

International visitors can book their resort holidays either via tour operators or directly with the hotels.
