Q When is the best time to travel?
The best season to visit the Maldives is between January and April, which corresponds to the high season because there is at least 8 hours of daily sunshine. It is more humid the rest of the year and difficult to enjoy paradise.
Q What are the process and visa fees?
Tourists traveling to the Maldives will be provided a free 30-day tourist visa on arrival. Tourists will not be subject to any quarantine measures upon arrival to the Maldives.
A negative PCR test report is mandatory for all tourist arriving from September 10 onwards. It has to be conducted within a maximum of 72h prior to departure to the Maldives.
Additionally, local health authorities may conduct random testing, at no cost to travelers. A health declaration card will be required as part of the on-arrival procedure.
Q What to pack?
It is very simple, you will only need light, summer clothes, swim wear, sun protection and nice outfits for dinner. If you plan to scuba dive, you can bring your own dive gear, if you like.
Q Any required vaccinations?
While there are no mandatory vaccines, we recommend you be up to date on universal DTP (diphtheria-tetanus-polio) vaccines. Consult with your doctor regarding vaccination against tropical diseases at least 3 months before your arrival. Yellow fever vaccination certificates are required for those travelling from countries at risk for this disease.
Q Is it a safe country?
The Maldives are relatively safe, especially on resort islands and hotels where theft is very rare. However, as in any country, one must be careful and trust one’s instincts. To avoid problems, always keep an eye on your belongings and use the safe in the room for valuable items.
Risks of tension exist in the Maldives and especially in Malé, so we recommend that you be vigilant and not stay in the capital city.
Q What is the currency?
The local currency is the Maldivian Rufiyaa but US dollars and Euros are accepted at major institutions. In January 2021, 1 USD = 15,40 MVR and 100 MVR = 6,49 USD.
You can find banks and currency exchange offices at the airport in Hulhulé and in Malé. It is forbidden to import/export Maldivian Rufiyaa. You can also change money at most hotels.
Q How can we travel through the country?
Considering the context and configuration of the islands, very little transport is used unless you go on an excursion. You will reach your hotel islands via seaplane or speedboat from the airport. Sometimes it could be a combination of domestic flights and speedboat when hotels are really far. Taxis are possible in Malé and the traditional boat, the Dhoni, is common in the Maldives. You can usually rent bicycles to get around your island.
Q What are the spoken languages?
The language spoken by the population is Divehi or Maldivian, a mixture of Hindi, Sinhalese and Arabic. Interacting in English in the hotels will be very easy, also with the diving professionals.
Q Practical Tips?
Islam is the religion practiced and imposed by the government, therefore it is strongly recommended considering dress codes outside hotels. When you take pictures, do not be too intrusive and ask the right people. Any actions that do not respect the rules inspired by the 5 pillars of Islam are severely punished.
Note that it is strictly forbidden to leave the country with shells, coral, turtle shells or any objects with scales.
