In 2021, the Maldives received a total of 809,764 visitors, with 53,798 of them arriving in the current month. In comparison to the 49,261 arrivals registered during the same period last year, September's arrivals are up 9.2 percent.
Borders were closed from the 27th of March to the 15th of July last year, resulting in only 3,924 arrivals in 2020. Tourist arrivals have increased by 104.4 percent this year compared to the same period last year, according to statistics. However, this is a 31.6 percent decline from the over one million tourists in 2019, which was a watershed moment for Maldives tourism.
