Maldives to Lift South Asia Travel Ban and Reduces Curfew Hours

Maldives will reopen its borders on July 15 for travellers from South Asian countries. All visitors are required to submit a negative PCR result to enter the country.

Maldives President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih announced this at a press conference held on Tuesday. He also announced further easing of Covid-19 restrictions including reduced curfew hours.

From July 1, tourists, locals and work permit holders are allowed to go outside between 04:00 to 20:00 hours without a police permit. All businesses can start providing services again during these hours.

The safety measures were put in place to restrict the travellers from South Asia on May 11 after the second wave of pandemic in India and rise in cases in other South Asian countries.

Maldives initially reopened its border on 15th July 2020, after nearly four months of closure.

South Asia has been the second largest source market for Maldives tourism, however Europe is still the number one market for the Maldives.
