We recommend following these steps to protect yourself and others when you travel:
Velana International Airport (VIA) has implemented social distancing measures with clearly visible signs and floor markings in passenger terminals.
All visitors MUST keep a distance of at least ONE meter (3 FEET) between one another at all times, while in these spaces.
If an individual exhibits Covid-19 symptoms on arrival, they will have to undergo a PCR test. If you are travelling in a group, all members of the group must undergo testing.
Individuals who have been selected for PCR testing will be escorted to the testing area and then transferred to a transit facility until test results are received. Please note that the Government of Maldives will not bear the costs of these tests or stay at the transit facility.
Government will take every step to ensure that results of tests are available within a maximum period of 24 hours from time at which sample is taken.
