Flights from Chicago to the Maldives are as low as $675 for a roundtrip between October 2021 and April 2022 with Etihad Airways.

Flights from Chicago to the Maldives are as low as $675 for a roundtrip between October 2021 and April 2022 with Etihad Airways. The dates do exclude Christmas and New Year.

If you’re in Chicago, you better hurry up and book your flight to the Maldives before the prices go higher. The island archipelago is one of the few destinations in the world to relax and enjoy a holiday without having to worry about COVID-19 restrictions. As resorts in the Maldives are on their very own private island, isolation comes naturally for holidaymakers.

Maldives is a popular destination for travellers from the US. According to statistics, 15,624 travellers from the US visited the Maldives between 1st January 2021 and 9th January 2021.

Crowned as the World’s Leading Destination in 2020, the Maldives has revolutionized how people can vacation in the new normal. While there are budget-friendly resorts in the Maldives, you can choose a guesthouse to spend your holiday if you are on a very tight budget, but would still like to experience the sunny side of life.

Travellers from anywhere in the world can visit the Maldives with no restrictions. All nationalities will receive a tourist visa upon their arrival in the Maldives. Likewise, anyone coming to the island archipelago as a tourist will not require pre-approval for the visa. Check out the basic entry requirements to get immigration clearance HERE.

Temporarily, the Maldives Immigration suspended entry for tourists from South Asian countries. This means tourists from India, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka are barred from visiting the tropical holiday destination. Once the COVID-19 situation eases, travellers from these countries will be able to visit the Maldives as well.

By the end of May 2021, Maldives surpassed 450,000 tourist arrivals. The island nation aims to welcome 1.5 million tourists this year.
