  • Maldives Maldives may reopen to tourists on July 1. The Telegraph, which uses Ali Wahed, the Minister of Tourism of the Maldives, as a source. He has outlined a plan to welcome back tourists as of July 1, 2020, when commercial flights to the country are scheduled to resume

    The Maldivesā€™ unprecedented restrictions
    The Maldives has presented whatā€™s perhaps the most comprehensive and arguably over-the-top plan to ensure ā€œsafeā€ tourism. I think this plan makes tourism to the Maldives incredibly safe, but the question is whether the restrictions are so severe as to prevent most people from wanting to visit.

    With this proposed plan, what restrictions would visitors to the Maldives face?

    Travelers would have to apply for a tourist visa in advance, at a cost of $100 (previously many countries didnā€™t require any visas)
    Visas would only be granted to those who have a confirmed booking for a minimum of 14 nights, as well as travel insurance
    Travelers would need to submit either a negative antigen test or a positive antibody test, up to a week before arrival
    Travelers would have to pay $100 for an additional PCR antigen test upon arrival in Male
    Guests would need to be confined to their quarters until their test results are reported, which would take from three to 12 hours
