1. Present a Negative PCR COVID-19 Test

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 effective May 3rd, 2021. The sample for said PCR test must be taken not more than 96 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

All arriving passengers and airline crew should complete and submit the online Traveler Health Declaration form available from the “Imuga” Portal here 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.
