Following the reopening of borders in the Maldives to South Asian travellers on 15th July 2021, Indian tourists have been enjoying safe holidays here once more. Travellers don’t have to quarantine but must show a negative result of an RT-PCR test for COVID-19 taken within 96 hours before arrival. From staying at private resorts like Hard Rock Hotel Maldives to enjoying activities with the help of an Emboodhoo Lagoon area guide, tourists from India and other nations have been experiencing the best of the country.
Notably, India continues to remain the top source market for the Maldives as well; in September this year, according to statistics revealed by the Ministry of Tourism, Indians made up 22.9% of the total arrivals to the country. At the time, Russia took second place contributing 19.8% of arrivals followed by Germany (6.1%), the United States (4.1%) and Saudi Arabia (3.5%).
