Travel update: Maldives

The Maldives is open for international tourism. The Maldives took a different approach than most APAC countries, pursuing one of the most liberal opening policies in the world. To protect tourism country reopened its borders to all travelers in June 2020.

Upon arrival into the Maldives, travelers presenting symptoms of COVID-19 will be subject to PCR test at their cost and in case of positive result transported to quarantine facilities to isolate for 14 days. Tourists who do not show COVID-19 symptoms are not required to quarantine on arrival.

The Maldives are presenting themselves as a tourist destination offering a “normal” vacation thanks to the fact that most hotels are located on isolated islands, and that the vast majority of leisure-seekers stay in-resort rather than venture out. In fact, when visiting the Maldives you should be prepared to stay in one place as movement between resorts and islands is subject to authorization.
