    The covid-19 report is essential if you want to travel to the Maldives.

    Kick-started on September 10, if you are planning to visit the Maldives you need to have a report of negative Covid-19 results which is now a mandatory report to enter the island nation of Maldives.

    This move came in less than 2 months since the Maldives opened its border for tourists however, there was no requirement initially but lately, COVID-19 test and quarantine rules is mandatory.

    As per the latest update from Ministry of Tourism, Maldives all tourists arriving the archipelago need to submit Covid-19 test results at Male International Airport and the test results should not be less than 72 hours before you reach the airport. Apart from the new rule, other Covid-19 rules and regulations will still be in place.

    After a hiatus of 4 months, Maldives opened its borders to tourists from July 15 onwards and earlier it was possible to enter the country where tourists should sign the health declaration form at least 24 hours prior arrival and once they land they need to follow the strict measures enforced by the government to curb the rise of coronavirus cases.

    Most of the resorts in the Maldives are situated in their own Island hence they are allowing authorities to let the individual resorts to devise their own plan to help the tourists visit and quarantine. And as per the rules, all the resorts need to have a trained medical professional in place and he/she should be capable to collect COVID-19 sample for testing. Some of the resorts are testing its guests for COVID-19 which is an effort to create Coronavirus free bubbles.

    Given the Negative Covid-19 certificate being made mandatory, it is unclear if the resorts are still testing its guests for coronavirus. Also, the restrictions which were strict before splitting the holidays between two or more resorts have been relaxed which was not allowed earlier. Now tourists can split their accommodation plan after they get a nod from the government.
