The Maldives is going to restart tourism and reopen borders for tourists after the long travel ban from July 2020, the Tourism Ministry confirmed.
Tourism Ministry also reported that visitors will not be charged with any additional fees upon entry.
The Maldives had stopped on arrival visa for all tourists from 27th March 2020 as a precautionary measure to curb the spreading of COVID-19 outbreak in the country. The country’s travel industry came to a halt with the travel ban imposed by the government.
The Maldives’ Tourism Ministry has drafted rules and guidelines to open the borders and begin Safe Tourism. The guidelines have also been revised for the third time after discussions with the industry stakeholders and will be finalised before June 1, the Ministry announced.
