COVID-19 in The Maldives
The Maldives has the lowest COVID-19 infection rate in South Asia with the government and private sector working hand in hand to ensure the best non-intrusive safety and hygiene standards for travellers in the new normal.
Read our regularly updated Travel Advice for the Maldives below:
Unlike other countries, The Maldives introduced an open border policy in July 2020, directly after a nation-wide COVID-19 lockdown. Without arrivals having to provide a negative test result or enter quarantine measures of any kind. This has changed a bit and since from September 2020 onwards a negative test result is required to enter The Maldives, but this is in line with all the airline requirements if you want to board an international flight.
Most resorts in the Maldives went paperless, offering digital check-in and access to restaurant menus, leaving rooms and villas vacant for a minimum of 24 hours before check-ins.
In terms of health and safety, the government issued “Safe Tourism Licenses” to accredited resorts that abide by to specific safety requirements like having a certified medic on call and holding an “adequate stock” of personal protection equipment.
