Travelers are exempt from negative PCR test result if 2 weeks have passed after full vaccination

Effective from 20th April 2021, travelers arriving Maldives will not be required to produce a negative COVID-19 PCR-test certificate upon arrival and undergo mandatory quarantine, if they have passed 2 weeks after full vaccination and they can demonstrate proof of a valid full vaccination certificate with an approved vaccine against COVID-19.

As such, tourists who have completed full vaccination and completed 2 weeks after that, they do not require a negative PCR test result to enter the Maldives. Likewise, the other visa holders are exempt from quarantine procedures if they have completed the 2nd dose of vaccination and have passed 2 weeks from then.

However, travelers arriving to the Maldives to work in the following places are required to present a negative PCR test result on arrival, even though 2 weeks have passed after completing their 2nd dose of vaccination;

  • Health facilities
  • Daycare centers
  • Schools
  • Residential care services
