The Maldives is currently one of the UK’s approved travel corridors requiring no UK quarantine and is accepting UK visitors, with some entry requirements. Our Indian Ocean Travel Experts will be happy to talk you through the requirements including explaining what our partner hotels are doing to make this experience as hassle free as possible, as well as the airlines we’re working with who provide free Covid Insurance.

• Tourists and visitors from the UK can enter the Maldives from the 15th July 2020, as long as they can produce a negative PCR test no older than 96 hours from date of departure from the UK on route to Velana International airport in the Maldives.  All passengers over the age of 12 months old must produce a negative PCR test.

• From Sunday 25th October at 4am, anyone returning from the Maldives will not be subject to the 14 day self-isolation period as previously applied.

• The Maldives government requires all travellers to submit an online health declaration form 24 hours prior to their arrival into the Maldives.

• Link for the online Health Screen Form:

• Any guest who will arrive without the online form, will be asked to fill it at the airport and it may take a little time.

• All arrivals will go through health screening after the arrival gate which includes completion of a health declaration form if not already completed online and a temperature check.

• Any passenger with Covid-19 symptoms will be moved directly to an isolation facility for further tests. There will be a 14-day quarantine imposed for all positive COVID-19. Self-isolation can take place at either a government facility/hospital or may be possible at the tourists chosen resort island, if this island has the necessary isolation rooms as per local government and WHO requirements

• Contact tracing will come into force for any person travelling with the symptomatic or positive tested person

• Residents and tourists will bear the costs of examination and treatment whilst in the Maldives in the event they are infected with COVID-19 during their stay

• Everyone must adhere to all official measures and requirements established by the Maldives Government, which include the requirement to wear face masks at all times when inside the airport buildings, transiting between seaplane / domestic airline / boat terminals and during the transfer to their holiday island and all passengers are required to sanitise their hands prior to boarding any vessel or aircraft

• Guidelines are in place at the hotel and resort islands which include the wearing of masks where social distancing is not possible or within enclosed spaces, good hand hygiene to be followed and regular temperature screening will be required during the stay

• Ensure you have international health insurance coverage for Covid-19 before travelling
