WTTC recognizes Mauritius as a safe destination

Mauritius is actively preparing to welcome tourists and travellers very soon. Everything is done to ensure that this takes place under the best sanitary conditions, notably because of the COVID-19. The World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC), the supreme authority representing travel and tourism in the world, has just recognized the efforts undertaken by the Tourism Authority of Mauritius which has implemented a series of compulsory health measures to activate the recovery tourist activities.

The WTTC brings together more than 200 CEOs, presidents, and directors of the world's largest travel and tourism companies, from all geographies covering all industries. The WTTC strives to promote travel and tourism as one of the largest economic sectors in the world, supporting one in 10 jobs (330 million) worldwide and generating 10.3% of global GDP. Over the past 30 years, WTTC has conducted research on the economic impact of travel and tourism in 185 countries.

Since April 26, no local cases of COVID-19 have been recorded in Mauritius. This prompted the government to remove sanitary containment from May 31. This success of the most popular tourist destination in the Indian Ocean is to be attributed to the government, which, as of January, launched a series of measures following the evolution of the pandemic situation in the world. After the gradual closing of the borders, the application of strict containment measures, and isolation of the sick, followed by intensive contact tracing and tests, the country is now going to another phase while waiting to welcome its first visitors soon.
