Italy gives green light to travel to the Maldives

Italy has removed the Maldives from its list of countries to which travel is restricted.

Italians will now be allowed to travel to the Maldives without the need for quarantine either on arrival or return. In addition to Maldives, Italians can travel to Seychelles, Mauritius, Egypt, Dominican Republic and Aruba from outside EU.

Those traveling to the selected countries must have a ‘Green Pass’ showing COVID immunity. They must also present a negative PCR at least 48 hours before departure.

Italy is the Maldives' most traditional tourism market. The first tourist who arrived in the Maldives in 1972 was an Italian, and the country remains a top source market to date.
