Maldives Immigration introduces Online Work Visa Service on Sunday, and applicants can apply for visa through online portal from 17th November 2019. This service enables the employers and recruitment agencies to apply for the service through Xpat Online System.

This service will enhance efficiency while easing the visa submission process for individuals and business organizations.

The online visa will be processed within 48 hours of submission, and when the application is processed, applicants can request for an online appointment to submit the passport(s) for visa.
