U.S. State Department, CDC warn against Mauritius travel

Mauritius further eases travel restrictions, removes the day 5 antigen test

Mauritius last week removed the need for a day 5 antigen test during a holiday to Mauritius. This is for fully vaccinated travellers staying in a hotel or other accommodation on the island, including B&Bs, guest houses and villas.

The removal of the day 5 antigen test makes travelling to Mauritius even easier. Once holidaymakers have done a PCR test prior to flying to the island and a test on arrival in Mauritius (day 0), they no longer need to test unless symptomatic.

The removal of the day 5 antigen test allows guests to fully relax during their Mauritius holiday from day one.
