After closing its doors to tourists from South Asian countries in May, the Maldives is reopening to Indian tourists from July 15. With the easing of the second wave of Covid 19 in India, several foreign countries have reopened to Indian tourists. Russia, Turkey, South Africa, Mauritius, Iceland, Serbia, Egypt, Afghanistan and Uzbekistan are some of the overseas destinations that have reopened their borders to tourists Indians last month. The latest addition to this list is the Maldives – one of the most sought-after holiday destinations. All major Indian airlines will operate flights to Male in the next two days. However, the list of guidelines for traveling in the Maldives archipelago, especially for Indians, is long. Let’s look.

5 things to keep in mind when traveling to the Maldives:

1. A negative RT-PCR report

The tourist must undergo an RT-PCR test within 96 hours of the scheduled departure time and upon arrival in the Maldives produce a negative report. Even those who have been fully vaccinated will need to show the report. A negative RT-PCR report is now mandatory at almost all airports in India and globally.

2. Traveler’s Health Declaration

The tourist is required to submit a health declaration form 24 hours before the trip. To update your health status, you will need to upload a copy of your RT-PCR test and fill in some other personal information on the Maldives Immigration Portal.

3. Quarantine Rules

Only tourists showing symptoms of the virus upon arrival will be asked for mandatory quarantine. Additionally, those who have been fully vaccinated will be exempt from travel quarantine to the island country.


Visas will be issued to Indian travelers upon arrival. No pre-arrival visa is required.

5. Accommodation

According to reports, Indians will not be allowed to stay in hotels and resorts located on inhabited islands. Accommodation will only be available on uninhabited islands.
