Temporary Restrictions in Place to Ensure Maldives Remains a Safe Haven for Travelers

The government of Maldives has recently announced temporary measures to control the spread of COVID-19 in relation to the rising cases in South Asia. Effective 13th May 2021, the government of Maldives has decided to temporarily suspend the issuance of tourist visa for travelers arriving from South Asian Countries (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka) including those with a transit time exceeding 24 hours and have a travel history to the aforementioned countries within the past 14 days.
The following safety measures are in place to ensure the health, safety, and wellbeing of the local population and travelers alike. In addition, the Maldives is working hard to ensure that the destination remains a ‘safe haven’ for all travelers once the destination is open for South Asian travelers.
On 1st February 2021, Maldives initiated the administration of the COVID-19 vaccine, and the government aims to provide free COVID-19 vaccine to all citizens and residents of Maldives. As of now, 136,205 people have received the second dose of the vaccine. The Maldives recently initiated a campaign under the name ‘I’m Vaccinated!’ on 28th April 2021. Under this campaign, the ultimate target is to make Maldives the destination with the first fully vaccinated tourism sector in the world.
