Maldives had temporarily halted issuing tourist visas to South Asian tourists starting from 13th May, in an attempt to curb the spread of COVID-19 which had experienced a surge in the region.
Tourist arrivals from the South Asia region may resume on July 15th, but this is subject to change with respect to the COVID-19 situation in the next few weeks.
