PCR Tests no longer required to visit Maldives
Passengers arriving in the Maldives are no longer required to present a PCR negative test result if they have completed the prescribed dose(s) of a Covid-19 vaccine approved by the Maldives Food & Drug Authority or the World Health Organization (WHO) Emergency Use Listing (EUL) and at least 14 (fourteen) days have passed since. (No booster dose(s) are required to qualify for this exemption.)
Tourists who stay in tourist facilities on inhabited islands are no longer required to take a PCR test when leaving the respective inhabited islands.
Work Permit Holders and Maldivians, on the other hand, must undergo a Covid-19 PCR test within 3-5 days of arrival in the Maldives. Furthermore, children (over the age of one year) who are not eligible for vaccination, as well as individuals who have not completed the prescribed dose(s) of a Covid-19 vaccine, will be required to present a negative PCR upon arrival in the Maldives, with the sample for the PCR taken at most 96 (ninety-six) hours before departure from the first port of embarkation.
