Pursuant to the Health Protection Agency’s (HPA)announcement on travel restrictions for inbound passengers from South Asian countries (reference number 2021/64), tourism-related restrictions now apply:


15th July 2021 onwards, inbound tourists from South Asian countries may check-in at private resorts but are not allowed to check-in at guesthouses on any inhabited islands, until further notice from HPA. This excludes those who transit in Greater Malé Area at Ministry of Tourism approved guesthouses whilst they await their departure flights or resort transfers.

Guidelines on opening and allowing check-in at guesthouses on inhabited islands for tourists arriving from South Asia will be published by 30th July 2021.
