AsiaMaldivesVisa & Passport Requirements for Maldives

The Maldives has a remarkably simple visa policy — everyone gets a free 30-day visa on arrival provided they have a valid travel document, an exit ticket and proof of sufficient funds, defined as either a confirmed reservation at any resort or USD25/day in cash. This can be extended up to 90 days in Male, but you must specify where you will be staying for that long. See the Department of Immigration and Emigration website for details.

The Maldives is an Islamic country. The importation of the following is prohibited: Alcohol, pork and pork by-products, religious articles that are not Islamic, narcotics and psychotropic drugs Pornography (very broadly defined).

Note: All luggage is x-rayed on arrival. The export of sand, shells or coral is also prohibited.
