Maldives Stays

Maldives are still on the UK Red List

The United Kingdom recently amended its travel lists, easing foreign travel even more cautiously. The Maldives, on the other hand, is still on the blacklist.
Dr. Farahanaz Faisal, the Maldives' High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, said it was "very disheartening" that the United Kingdom "continues to maintain the Maldives on the red list despite low case numbers and high vaccination rates."
The Maldives is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the UK, but visitors must now undergo obligatory quarantine upon their return. The Maldives was placed on the UK's red list as a result of problems with updating genome sequencing tests that reveal the distribution of various COVID-19 variations. After visiting a red-listed country in the previous 10 days, British or Irish nationals will not be allowed to enter the UK.
