COVID -19 pandemic threatened the tourism sector globally, and yes, it did a huge impact on the Maldives too which is a country majorly dependent on this industry.
The country is open
The Maldives is among the very few countries that opened its boundaries to international travellers in 2020 itself. Every Maldives luxury resort the likes of Atmosphere Kanifushi is open now to serve the travellers.
Health and safety precautions
Although there is no quarantine measure applicable, PCR tests are being done upon arrival. The World Travel and Tourism Council has declared that the Maldives is a ‘safe destination’ to visit during the pandemic.
Things to do when you are there
Needless to say, the Maldives is the best for underwater explorations. You can go diving, snorkelling, and also enjoy submarine rides if you like. Parasailing, surfing, kayaking, and kite surfing are also possible to awaken the adventurer in you.
Do’s and don’ts
Wear face masks every time, and keep a hand sanitizer with you wherever you go. Don’t meet the locals at any instance since that’s prohibited as per the latest health and safety protocols.
