Mauritius lifts all Covid travel restrictions

Mauritius has lifted all Covid-19 related travel restrictions and is welcoming all guests, according to the Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority.

The authority said customers are no longer required to test or self-isolate to enjoy holidays in Mauritius.

The successful acceleration of the country’s vaccination program has enabled Mauritius to progress with full reopening and welcome visitors to a safe and secure environment. The country’s double vaccination rate now stands at more than 90%, and about two-thirds of all over-18s have also received

their booster shots, he said.

Mauritius partially reopened its borders on October 1, 2021 and more than 500,000 tourists have visited the paradise island since then.

A perfect climate awaits visitors who can enjoy the various outdoor activities Mauritius has to offer as well as world famous beaches, the authority said.

Mauritius, affectionately known as the Pearl of the Indian Ocean, is a diverse and rich island with enormous natural treasures beyond its world-famous beaches. The diverse landscape of Mauritius is made up of mountains, rivers and gorges which provide the ultimate setting for outdoor and extreme activities.

Outdoor activities include hiking opportunities with unforgettable views including Le Morne, a Unesco World Heritage Site, quad biking in the savannah, canyoning in gorges and rivers, hiking and swimming in the canyon of the Domaine de Chazal or the longest zipline in the Indian Ocean at La Vallée des Couleurs.

Tourists can enjoy amazing aerial adventures like seaplane, ultralight plane, helicopter, parachute rides over lagoons with panoramic views of the island, mountain sculptures and blue infinity of lagoons, said the authority. – TradeArabia Press Office
