French government has announced the removal of Mauritius from its list of “scarlet” destinations, just a few days after its classification as part of this list.
Following the recent announcement, travel to Mauritius from France has resumed for people vaccinated with an EMA-approved vaccine (Pfizer / Comirnaty, Moderna, AstraZeneca / Vaxzeria / Covishield, Janssen). Restrictions are, however, applicable to non-vaccinated travellers. With rigorous arrival protocols related to COVID-19 remaining in force, all visitors to Mauritius are required to be vaccinated, and to undergo PCR testing within 72 hours prior to travel, on arrival and in the days following, a joint statement from Mauritius’ Public/Private Sector Tourism Committee revealed.
Two months after the reopening of Mauritius’ borders, the tourism industry has come through some significant challenges. The entire value chain – airlines, hotels, restaurants, attractions, tour operators, taxis and more – is united to ensure that the recovery of Mauritian tourism is a success.
