The Maldives’ Ministry of Tourism revealed on Sunday that over 57% of resort staffs have received the 2nd dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. The ministry affirmed that despite the surge of COVID-19 cases in the capital of the island nation, Maldives remains one of the safest destinations for holidaymakers.

Earlier this month, the tourism ministry revealed that 99% of resort staffs have received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. The island archipelago plans to attract more travellers by becoming the first destination in the world with a fully vaccinated tourism sector.

Recently, the Tourism Ministry in partnership with stakeholders have also launched the I’m Vaccinated Campaign. This campaign aims to share a positive message about the vaccination of staff working in the tourism sector. Furthermore, the campaign promotes the initiatives undertaken to guarantee the Maldives retains its position as one of the safest destinations in the world for travellers.

According to the latest statistics from HPA, 305,850 people have received the 1st dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Meanwhile, 156,002 people in the Maldives have received the 2nd dose of the vaccine.

The Maldives announced ambitious plans to vaccinate travellers when they visit the Maldives. The ‘Visit, Vaccinate, Vacation’ initiative is set to begin once all the residents of the island nation get fully vaccinated.

This month, tourism arrivals to the Maldives have been negatively influenced due to the COVID-19 crisis in India. India has been the island nation’s leading tourist source market until the crisis. Currently, Russia is the leading tourist source market to the Maldives.

The tropical holiday destination has pushed aggressive marketing campaigns in different regions. Tourism Minister of the Maldives, Dr. Abdulla Mausoom earlier stated that the Maldives aims to welcome 1.5 million tourists in 2021.
