Will I need a PCR test at the airport?
All vaccinated travelers staying in other accommodation must have a PCR test on arrival at the airport (day 0). After baggage collection, you may go to your accommodation and wait for your results. The Ministry of Health and Wellness will call you with your result within 6-12 hours. After a negative test result, you can freely explore Mauritius.
If you stay at a hotel, there will be no PCR testing at the airport. Antigen tests will be carried out at the hotel on arrival (day 0) and day 5. These will be chargeable, subject to your hotel policy.
If you are staying at other accommodation on the island or returning to your home, you will be required to take a PCR test on arrival at the airport (day 0). This will be free of charge for all vaccinated guests.
A self-administered antigen test will also be required on day 5 of your stay.
You must present a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours before departure to enter Mauritius.
