Guests should have a health document in English that confirms they had a PCR test with negative results for COVID-19. Likewise, the PCR test needs to conducted 72 hours prior to their departure to the Maldives.

Furthermore, the Ministry of Tourism has announced to grant permission for guesthouse reopening starting from 15th October 2020.

The signature “one-island-one-resort” concept of the Maldives means that visitors to the country are based in their respective resorts. These unique arrangements make it easier for visitors to maintain social distancing, whilst they can enjoy a truly safe and isolated holiday. Moreover, all resort facilities have been regulated to ensure that they are in line with the COVID-19 tourism guidelines to guarantee the safety of tourists throughout their stay in the country.
