The costs of quarantine accommodation varies from Rs 35,000 (USD$877) to Rs 48,500 (USD$1 214) at the moment.

All prospective passengers (including Mauritians/holders of Mauritian permits) travelling to Mauritius will have to possess the following documents:

  • a certificate of a negative COVID – 19 PCR test administered not more than 7 days prior to the date of embarkation
  • a valid air ticket to Mauritius; and
  • proof of purchase of a travel package including accommodation, on a full board basis, at a designated hotel for a mandatory 14-day in-room quarantine.

Incoming passengers to Mauritius must download and fill their Public Health Covid-19 Passenger Health Self-Declaration Form and Passenger Locator Form, which must be handed over to the Ministry of Health and Wellness counters upon their arrival.

Attention is also drawn to the fact that any arriving passenger will have to undergo PCR tests on day of arrival, day 7 and day 14 following arrival: and if a PCR test reveals that a person is COVID-19 positive, he shall be transferred to a public medical institution for treatment.

Under no circumstance are arriving passengers allowed to quarantine in personal housings (family/relatives/friends’ homes or personal apartments and bungalows).
