This just in. If you have plans to visit the Maldives, traveling to this famous destination just got easier. But you have to meet certain qualifications in order bypass the need to provide negative COVID test results.
Thanks to my travel buddy, Drew J., for sharing this with me and with my Facebook Travel Group.
Who are exempt from the negative COVID test requirement
According to VisitMaldives.com, here’s an excerpt from the circular released by the Ministry of Tourism for the Republic of Maldives. This was released on April 16, 2021.:
Travelers to Maldives (including tourists) who have completed their two doses of Covid-19 vaccination (recognized by WHO) 2 weeks prior to travel are now exempted from the prearrival Negative PCR requirement and do not require to undergo or observe the travel
quarantine on arrival to the Maldives.
This message was also released on Twitter:
Best to stay informed
As with many things, these requirements could all change, and are subject to change without notice. So if you have any plans to visit the Maldives, my suggestion is to stay informed of the latest requirements when you visit the Maldives.
