Likewise, the Russian Market has been the strongest source market in terms of tourist arrivals since the borders reopened.

The Maldives has also resumed guesthouse operations outside the Greater Male’ Region on 15th October 2020. According to the Ministry of Tourism, 28 guesthouses now remain operational (as of 20th October 2020). Although Guesthouse tourism was initially planned to resume in August 2020, it was delayed to 15th October 2020 as an extra precaution to COVID-19.
