The Maldives has relaxed its entry rules for fully vaccinated British holidaymakers.

Those who’ve had both doses of a COVID vaccine no longer need to take a pre-departure COVID test.

Those who haven’t been fully vaccinated for at least 14 days must still take a PCR test up to 96 hours before departing for the Maldives. Only infants under 12 months old are exempt.

All travellers to the Maldives must fill also in a Traveller Health Declaration form 48 hours before departure to and return from the Maldives.

Also, all passengers and airline crew need to complete an Immigration Arrival Card when arriving in the Maldives.

Temperature checks and screening procedures will be in place on arrival.

All non-tourist passengers travelling from the UK, including those who are in transit, must still show a negative COVID test, even if fully vaccinated. Those who have not completed vaccinations must self-isolate for 14 days and register on the Haalubelun portal.
