The government of Maldives recently announced temporary suspension of tourist visa for travellers arriving from South Asian countries, in India.
Thoyyib Mohamed, MD, MMPRC said, “During this unprecedented time, we opened our border with stringent safety measures. However, keeping in mind the safety of our residents and travellers, the ministry recently had to announce the temporary suspension of tourist visas for those travelling from South Asia. The decision was taken to ensure the health, safety, and wellbeing of residents and visitors to the country. The ministry will review the situation by the end of May and are optimistic that there will be an ease in restrictions in June. We are working hard to ensure that the destination remains a ‘safe haven’ for all travellers once it re-opens for our valued South Asian travellers.“
Amidst the global pandemic, the Maldives gained a momentum and is recognised as a safe haven for traveller’s because of its unique geographically isolated islands and the popular ‘one island one resort’ concept.
Besides that, there are so many reasons to seek this sunny side of life- a divine opportunity for relaxation, secluded by a private island offering visitors the chance to escape the hustle and bustle of the daily modern industrial life or a chance to arrive in the present moment and connect with oneself and nature or just to experience thrill and adventure.
