Agents are already receiving more enquiries from customers for Mauritius following the destination’s announcement it will relax all COVID requirements from Friday, according to Beachcomber Tours.

The operator, which owns eight hotels and resorts in Mauritius, says it has been taking calls from agents looking to book clients following the update.

From 1 July, arrival tests for both vaccinated and unvaccinated passengers will no longer be required and facemasks won’t have to be worn in hotels, although they are still required in public areas such as airports, ports and on public transport.

Airlines may also require masks to be worn.

Beachcomber Tours UK Sales Manager Sarah Archer said: “We’ve already had several agents calling to quote and a £15,000 booking about to confirm.”

She added: “We’re delighted that this further relaxation of rules in Mauritius will enable many more people to enjoy Beachcomber’s island, and our clients due to travel in the next few weeks can look forward to a more relaxed approach for their holiday.”

Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority Director Arvind Bundhun said he is confident Mauritius’ ‘post-pandemic recovery is well underway’.
