Entry Requirements for Vaccinated Visitors
Proof of vaccination:

You will be required to show your COVID-19 vaccinations to enter into the country as fully vaccinated.  You will be able to do this using the NHS COVID app.

Test pre-travel/recovery certificate: Not required
On arrival:

You should ensure that all members of the party travelling are covered with a COVID-19 health insurance policy to enter into Mauritius and this may need to be shown on arrival into the country.

You will also be required to take a further antigen test on arrival into Mauritius which will be completed at your hotel. As long as this test is negative you will still be free to move around the island.  

This test will be covered by the hotel and you will not need to pay for this locally. 

Children under 18 are able to enter into Mauritius regardless of their vaccination status and will not need to take a test before travel, as long as they are travelling with fully vaccinated adults.  They will still need to take an antigen test on arrival.

Form pre-travel:

A Traveller Health Declaration form will need to be completed before travel.  Please check on the link below to see when you are able to complete the form needed for your destination.  You may need to either complete this form electronically, or print out and take with you to show at the airport of departure and arrival. It is important that you check the form as early as you can for time frames as this may need to be completed up to 7 days before travel, or as little as 24 hours before travel.
