Mauritian Port Health Authorities have advised that any vessels that have performed crew change operations in South Africa, Reunion Island, Mayotte and Brazil will be allowed entry in Port Louis on the following conditions:

  • Vessel to have been at sea for a minimum of 15 days following crew change operation.
  • PCR test for COVID-19 carried out at anchorage.
  • Vessel will be allowed to berth only following negative results for COVID-19.

It should be noted that even after having spent the prescribed lapse of time of 15 days following crew change, and being in possession of a negative PCR result from a foreign port, such vessels will still have to perform fresh PCR test in Port Louis.
