The Maldives resorts and liveaboards will continue to welcome tourists from all countries, including those traveling from India.
The government of Maldives has recently announced temporary measures to control the spread of Covid-19 in relation to the rising Covid-19 cases in India.
Indian travellers arriving in the Maldives are restricted from staying at guesthouses and hotels located in local inhabited islands.
This temporary ban does not apply to island resorts and hotels located away from the local population.
All flights will be as per schedule and no change is expected in terms of local transport from the airport to the resorts.
Under the released order signed by Director General of Public Health Maimoona Aboobakr, the restrictions will take place from 27th April 2021. Indian tourists will also be required to present a negative PCR test when travelling to Maldives.
As per the released travel restrictions order:
- Travelers from India to Maldives (including those who have spent over 24 hours in transit in India) are required to present proof of a negative PCR test taken no more than 92 hours before when entering Maldives. This includes those who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
- Maldivian citizens and work permit holders who arrive in Maldives from India, including those who have been vaccinated against COVID-19, are required to get a PCR test done within 24 hours upon arrival, and undergo 10 days of quarantine. They will be released from quarantine once they test negative upon completion of the quarantine period. This does not include children under the age of one year.
- Indian tourists are also required to undergo a PCR test prior to departure from Maldives
While Indian tourists will no longer be permitted to check in to hotels and guesthouses in residential islands starting April 27, those already checked into hotels and guesthouses will be allowed to stay at such facilities till the completion of their booking duration.
India was the top source market for tourism in the Maldives in the year 2020 and remains as the top source market even in 2021. According to statistics publicized by the Tourism Ministry, Indian tourists made up 11.3% of total tourist arrivals to the Maldives in 2020.
Maldives reopened borders to all nationalities from 15th July 2020. All visitors are granted a 30-day free on-arrival visa with a confirmed booking for a stay at any registered tourist facility in the country.
