The Maldives, one of the world’s top travel destinations, will be allowing visitors again in July. It was announced by the Tourism Ministry of Maldives through the “Maldives, The Sun Will Shine Again” Champaign.
A series of video statements by the Ministry of Tourism stated that the country will open in July and the tourists will not be charged any additional fees. The tourist will have easy access with on arrival visa and no other requirements. Furthermore, tourists are not required to complete a quarantine period and no additional fees will be charged by the country. The government also promises better holiday packages to attract tourists to the Maldives.
In 2019, The Maldives welcomed 1.7 million visitors and it was expected to jump to 2 million this year, however the impact of coronavirus has been devastating for tourism as there is no tourist arrival since March.
The Maldives has had 1,841 confirmed cases and seven deaths up to today.
