Date:2020-11-07

Major international flights have gradually resumed operations. After the reopening of the border, more than ten international airlines have resumed routes to the Maldives, with a total of 242 flights during this period.

According to the Maldives Tourism Authority, since the Maldives reopened its borders on July 15, a series of orderly epidemic prevention measures have been effective, and the Maldives has ushered in an initial recovery in the tourism industry. The Maldives will continuously update and adjust the local epidemic prevention strategy according to the global epidemic situation and optimize its implementation to ensure the health of every tourist and travel-related personnel who will visit the Maldives.

According to official statistics, more than 26,000 tourists from all over the world visited the Maldives from July 15 to October 14. The number of new tourists has been increasing month by month since July. As of now, the average daily number of new tourists has reached 540. Although still not as good as before the outbreak, the overall trend of the tourism industry is improving. Major international flights have gradually resumed operations. After the reopening of the border, more than ten international airlines have resumed routes to the Maldives, with a total of 242 flights during this period.

In order to adapt to the new normal of the tourism industry during the epidemic, local testing agencies have spared no effort to serve tourists, with an average of over 1,200 test samples per day. In response to the current situation of the epidemic, the Madai government has cooperated with insurance companies to launch the first travel accident insurance covering the new crown infection in the Madai area. The scope of claims covers patient isolation, treatment, transportation and other expenses. In addition, since it takes a certain amount of time for the results of the local new crown test on weekends, in order to facilitate the tourists traveling on the weekend, the Maldives Health and Safety Bureau has restricted the validity of PCR negative tests from 72 hours to 96 hours before tourists depart for Maldives. In addition to the above measures, the Director of the Maldives Tourism Bureau recently issued a statement that in accordance with the "Guidelines and Latest Guidelines for Epidemic Prevention and Control Measures Under the Resumption of Tourism Industry", tourist facilities in the Greater Male Region will be gradually opened. Private hotels and hotels can apply to the authorities to resume operations under two conditions, that is, to receive local tourists or to serve as a transit point for foreign tourists.
