Mauritius welcomes back tourists after lifting restrictions

Mauritius officially reopened its borders as it lifted restrictions for fully vaccinated travelers. Visitors will be able to freely explore the paradise island’s beaches, mountains, waterfalls and lagoons from the moment they land.

Mauritius has implemented one of the most successful Covid responses in the world, with 83 percent of its adult population now double-vaccinated. The paradise island is now seeing huge demand from international travelers who are choosing Mauritius for its stunning scenery, safety and security.

There were joyous celebrations at Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam international airport this morning, as the first planeloads of tourists touched down. Deputy Prime Minister Steven Obeegadoo, who was there to greet the new arrivals, said: “This is a great day for Mauritius, and we are delighted to be able to welcome tourists back to our beautiful nation. Our global best practice strategy of vaccinating our citizens first before reopening has meant we can lift restrictions today with confidence.

Hotel and airline bookings for Mauritius have soared in recent weeks, and additional international flights have been added to keep up with demand. Many major airlines from around the world fly to Mauritius, including British Airways, Emirates, Air France, South African Airways, Air Austral, Air Seychelles, Turkish Airlines, Kenya Airways, Edelweiss, Austrian Airlines and Mauritius’s flagship carrier Air Mauritius.
