Last Updated: September 14th, 2021
1. Present a Negative PCR COVID-19 Test
To ensure the safety of all, HPA has made it a mandatory requirement for all tourists (including those who have completed the prescribed dose(s) of a Covid-19 vaccine) to present a negative result for a Nucleic Acid Test (PCR test) for Covid-19 on arrival. The sample for said PCR test must be taken not more than 72 hours prior to the scheduled time of departure from the first port of embarkation en-route to the Maldives. However, children below one-year-old are exempted from the requirement.
The PCR test document containing the test result should state the name of the passenger (name as in passport), passport number, name and address of the testing laboratory, type of test stated as PCR test, date of sampling and test result.
2. Complete and Submit the Online Traveler Health Declaration Form
Additionally, all arriving passengers and airline crew should complete and submit the online Traveler Health Declaration form available from “Imuga” Portal, (https://imuga.immigration.gov.mv/) within 24 hours prior to their departure to the Maldives. You should also attach your PCR test results to the online Traveler Health Declaration form.
Please report to the Immigration counter if you are experiencing any respiratory symptoms while at the airport or report directly to the International Border Health counter.

Before returning to the USA effective immediately, the United States requires that all air passengers entering the country will be required to provide a negative COVID-19 test prior to boarding their flight as per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Many of our travel suppliers have made arrangements for on-site COVID-19 testing right at your hotel (view these travel supplier policies).
Reminder-if you do any COVID testing or seek any healthcare while abroad, please retain all receipts for insurance purposes.
