After a long wait for many months, our BARNES Mauritius team is very happy to announce that the borders will reopen very soon. Indeed, a press release has just been issued by the Mauritian government concerning the reopening of the borders. This will be done in two phases:

- Phase 1: between July 15th 2021 and September 30th 2021

Each traveler who wishes to visit the island between these dates will have to complete a fourteen days in a hotel before being able to move freely on the territory. PCR tests will be carried out at the beginning, middle and end of the four-week period to ensure that people entering the country are not contagious.
Rest assured, the vaccinated persons will be able to benefit 100% from their stay in the hotel thanks to the swimming pool, the beach, the restaurant before entering freely the Mauritian territory.
