Maldives has recently dropped the requirement of negative RT-PCR test result from fully vaccinated international travelers arriving at an Indian Ocean island.

Think Strawberries, which represents Maldives Marketing and PR Corp in India, said in a statement that effective from 5th March 2022.

Children above one year of age who are not eligible for vaccination, as well as individuals who have not completed the prescribed dose of a coronavirus vaccine, will be required to submit a negative PCR upon arrival in the Maldives. The sample for PCR was taken at least 96 (ninety-nine) hours before departure from the port of embarkation.

In addition, all inbound international passengers must still complete the Traveler Health Declaration Form within 48 hours of their flight.

It should be noted that India is one of the major source markets for Maldives, which ranks third in terms of tourist arrivals with around 29,643 visitors to the country.

With around 278,740 passengers and a market share of 22.6 per cent in 2021, India was the largest market. Similarly, India was the leading market in 2020 with 62,960 arrivals and a market share of 11.3 per cent.
