Travel ban, permit delays announced
What is the change?
The Mauritius government recently announced a number of measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
- Effective March 28, there is a complete ban on travel to Mauritius, until 15th May 2020. Access to the airport departure area is restricted to departing passengers with valid plane tickets.
- Only essential government services are available because of a country-wide lockdown, which will be in effect until 4th May 2020.
- Additionally, both new applications and renewal applications for Occupation/Work Permit applications will be delayed during the lockdown,.
- Individuals suspected of being infected with COVID-19 will be entered in a quarantine facility for 14 days, and will be tested. The same is true for those who have been in contact with an infected person. Individuals in quarantine for such reasons who test positively for COVID-19 are subject to longer quarantine periods.
The new travel restriction and residency permit processing disruption will impact the movement of people into Mauritius. Employers should account for affected travelers and rearrange travel schedules accordingly. Significant delays may occur for consular and in-country processing.
