Fully vaccinated

Fully vaccinated visitors from the Maldives therefore no longer have to submit a negative Covid-19 test result on arrival. The popular beach destination immediately canceled the PCR test obligation for all tourists with a double jab.

Declaration of health

However, all travelers to the Maldives must still send a 48 hours before departure and on return health declaration for travelers to fill in.
