Mauritius is already known around the world as a safe, luxurious and welcoming destination. The country recorded its first cases of COVID-19 in March 2020 forcing the government to close borders. Fortunately, the authorities have been quick to react and have successfully kept the number of infections low, compared to the predictions of the WORLD HEATH ORGANISATION.


Since April the 26th, no local cases of COVID-19 have been recorded in Mauritius and the curfew order has been removed on May the 31st. Mauritius is actively preparing to welcome back tourists and travellers. Everything is being done to ensure that this takes place under strict protocols recommend by the WTTC.


Major destinations around the world have signed up for the global safety and hygiene stamp created recently by the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC), which represents the global travel and tourism private sector.
