Mauritius has lifted the travel ban for South Africans, as well as eight other countries in Africa.
Commercial flights from South Africa and other affected nations — Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Eswatini, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique and Zambia — to Mauritius resumed from Friday, 7 January 2022.
Arvind Bundhun, director, Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority (MTPA), advised travellers to confirm flight availability with airlines and tour operators.
He also advised the passengers to follow Covid-19 protocols.
“We are very pleased that South Africans can once again travel to Mauritius. The Covid-19 has placed significant pressure on all nations to do the right thing and we thank South Africans and the South African travel industry for their patience in this regard,” he said.
Mauritius is still implementing a wide-ranging Covid-19 response and has put a priority on delivering booster doses to people already double-vaccinated. The vaccination of 15-18-year-olds is also well underway.
“Sanitary protocols throughout the Mauritius hospitality industry remain at the very highest standards, ensuring that the local community and international guests are afforded maximum protection from the virus. Visitors can book holidays to Mauritius with a high degree of confidence that their trips will be enjoyable, safe, and secure,” says Bundhun.
