GIS  – 30 May 2020: Operators in the tourism sector will be authorised to resume their activities, except for marine activities as from Sunday 31 May 2020, under strict sanitary measures.

This was announced in a communique issuedby the Tourism Authority following Government's decision to end the curfew today at midnight.

The objectives of these sanitary measures are to ensure that companies take all health precautionary measures for their employees and their future customers, send a reassuring message to international markets related to the safeguard of the health of the population as well as visitors andensure the sustainability of Destination Mauritius. Other measures taken are as follows:

·         the resumption of activities will be permitted only if all the requirements of the 'health protocol for the resumption of activities in the tourism sector' are observed.These protocols, validated by the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) on 27 May 2020, can be consulted on the web page


·         the recommendations of the World Health Organization as well as those of the Ministry of Health and Wellness have been taken into considerationto limit the risks of a second wave of the Covid-19 infections


·         the launching of a Web Application soon to enable each tourist operator to undergo a self-assessment whereby a certificate bearing the seal "Safe Travels approved by WTTC" will be issued to each operator who has adopted the health measures recommended. This certificate will be generated from the Web Application and will be mandatory for each operator licensed by the Tourism Authority.

The Tourism Authority highlighted that it will ensure compliance with these measures, which can be amended at any time as the pandemic evolves, through regular inspections. Failure to comply with the same may result in suspension of the licence of the operator.
