We now advise all not to travel overseas at this time, due to the health risks from the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and the significant disruptions to global travel. This includes to the Maldives. If you’re already overseas and wish to return to Australia, we recommend you do so as soon as possible by commercial means.

Maldives has temporarily suspended entry and transit of foreigners who have travelled through a number of high risk countries in the past 14 days, currently not including Australia (see Travel). This list may be extended to cover more countries at short notice. Contact your airline or nearest Maldivian embassy to confirm entry requirements. Expect additional health screening at entry points. Excursions and travel between islands is being restricted. Follow the advice of local authorities. If you have symptoms of respiratory illness, contact your doctor before travelling. We now advise you to: Do not travel to the Maldives.
