Entry into Maldives does not require a prior visa and based on immigration requirements, entry permits will be granted on arrival. However an entry permit does not permit visitors to take up employment, set up any business or conduct any professional activities (paid or unpaid) except with the consent of the government and in compliance with pertinent laws and regulations of the Maldives.
Visitors of all nationalities are granted entry with free 30 day visa if they possess:
- a valid international travel document issued by a sovereign state’s government
- a valid return air ticket and necessary visas to a destination where the passenger has permission to enter
- a minimum of US$30.00 per person per day or confirmed hotel reservation for the intended period of stay in the Maldives
