Maldives Travel Advisory

COVID-19 TRAVEL UPDATES TO THE MALDIVES

Marhaba! On behalf of our team, thank you for choosing Anantara Kihavah in the stunning Baa Atoll region, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in the Maldives archipelago. We are delighted to have you stay with us as we strive to create a truly memorable experience for you.

Our highest priority is to maintain a safe and secured environment on our island for our guests and team members, so that it remains your private sanctuary, providing respite from everyday life. 

We are uniquely placed to optimise this from our private island location, with complete control over who is permitted to enter our resort. Our all-villa accommodation presents the ultimate seclusion. Cradled by lush greenery and heritage palm trees, and a 360 degrees encircled beachfront, all our villas are exceptionally private, with spacious outdoor and indoor areas for dining and relaxing, including your own swimming pool and sundeck. 

To help address concerns you may have regarding your upcoming travel to the Maldives, we have prepared the following guide for every stage of your journey.


With kind regards,


 
Ross Sanders
General Manager

TRAVEL TO THE MALDIVES
Travellers entering to the Maldives are no longer required to present a negative PCR test result upon arrival. This applies to unvaccinated travellers as well.
All tourist arrivals will be provided with a 30-day validity visa on arrival. As part of the visa requirement, you must present the following documents:

  • A confirmed hotel booking of your stay at our resort.
  • Submission of a self-declaration health form within 72 hours of the arrival flight time in the Maldives. This is an online form to be completed via Imuga - Maldives Immigration. Kindly note that the received certificate upon completion of the form will remain valid for only 72 hours. Please time your submission according to your flight arrival time in the Maldives. Submission of personal details including full name, must match the details on your passport.
Split-Stay Travel
Split stay travel within the Maldives is permitted by the Ministry of Tourism and guests may now travel to our resort without restrictions from other establishments in the Maldives. Day trips to our resort outlets are also permitted.
Should you wish to stay in another establishment after our resort and require a negative RT-PCR test result, we offer PCR testing service on site. For more information on this, please refer to the PCR TESTING SERVICE section.
 
Arrival and Transfer
Upon your arrival to Velana International Airport, you will be escorted by our airport welcome host to our seaplane lounge manned by our partner – Manta Air. Complying with COVID-19 protection standards, your luggage will be handled throughout your journey by a dedicated handler and sanitised at every stage.

Every transfer; seaplane or domestic, and speedboat will be thoroughly sanitised after every trip with a minimum gap of 30 minutes between each trip. Should you be boarding a seaplane, Manta Air aims to provide a non-stop transfer to our resort whenever possible. 

Seaplane Lounge 
Physical distancing compliance with lounge seating maintained at a space distance of 3 feet. Guests travelling together as a group will be accommodated in a clustered seating, separate from other grouped or individual guests. For your convenience, hand sanitiser points will be available throughout the lounge. It is advisable to always keep your mask on. Should you require additional masks, the lounge will be able to provide this on request. 

Anantara App
We are amongst the first Anantara resorts worldwide to launch the Anantara app. Aimed at reducing physical interactions in situations where automated contactless communication is possible; from ordering in-villa dining or making a spa reservation, viewing information on our restaurants, guest activities, or a live chat request to your Villa Host, this app is designed to provide a smooth and seamless experience of your stay at our resort. We are pleased to offer the app available for download on the iTunes or android app stores. Please scan the QR code below.

Stay with Peace of Mind
We are committed to safeguarding your health and wellbeing during every moment of your stay.


Resort Medical Services
Our resort doctor and nurse are on call 24 hours, daily. Consultation, examination and basic medication will be provided complimentary for all guests. In situations requiring further medical attention or a referral case, including and not limited to laboratory testing and transfer to a government medical facility, the costs of these will be charged to the guest’s account. Guests will be referred to the neighbouring Eydhafushi Hospital or hospitals in Male city.

PCR Testing Service 
Should you be required to present a PCR test result as part of your outbound travel, our resort can facilitate this process. 

We have partnered with 3 private hospitals in Male city to provide this service at US$ 80 per person per test. An advance notice of 72 hours prior to departure date is required. Testing will be done in our clinic or in the privacy of your villa and samples will be sent immediately to the laboratory for analysis. The test results will be provided within 24 hours and sent by email.

Departure from the Maldives 
Submission of a self-declaration health form within 48 hours of the departure flight time from the Maldives. 
This is an online form to be completed via Imuga - Maldives Immigration. 

We advise all travellers to check on your respective official governmental portals on the latest travel advisories and travel requirements for inbound travel returning to your countries.

Health Protection Agency (HPA) Regulations 
In accordance with local regulations issued by the Ministry of Health, passenger arrivals into the Maldives may be screened for COVID-19. Passengers displaying symptoms may be required to undergo testing at the discretion of the HPA. In accordance with the law, we are required to report all suspected cases to the authorities for further testing to be conducted.

Isolation Period
In line with the latest governmental regulations, guests who test positive and are asymptomatic will be isolated in the resort for 7 days from the date of sample collection. Guests who exhibit Covid-19 symptoms at the end of isolation period specified are required to continue their isolation until 24 hours after symptoms have cleared. 

Guests who are identified as being in direct contact of a positive case and who have completed the prescribed dose(s) of COVID-19 vaccine but asymptomatic are NOT required to observe a quarantine period. However, if symptomatic the guest shall undertake a PCR test or a Rapid Antigen Test for Covid-19 and can ONLY be released upon receiving a negative test result. Regardless of the ease mentioned above, ALL guests who are identified as a direct contact of a positive case are required to undertake an additional PCR test after 5 days from the date of last contact with the said positive case. This is strictly applicable ONLY to those direct contacts who are quarantined separately from the positive case.

For guests who observe their mandatory quarantine period together with a positive case of Covid-19 will only be released till the positive case of Covid-19 completes their isolation period. The isolation period will come to an end ONLY upon receiving a negative result for the PCR test done at the end of quarantine period. Regardless of the ease mentioned above, ALL guests who are identified as a direct contact of a positive case are required to undertake an additional PCR test after 5 days from the end of the isolation period of the positive case.

Guests who HAVE NOT completed the prescribed dose(s) of a COVID-19 vaccine shall complete a 14-day quarantine followed by a negative PCR test at the end of the period.
If a child under 12 or any guest that is not eligible for vaccination of COVID-19 are placed under quarantine with a vaccinated guest who can avail the fifth day test, they may submit a special request to the resort for the release of the child/individual.

Quarantine Accommodation
Quarantine/isolation periods will be spent at the resort in a private pool villa. A special accommodation rate will be afforded to the guests at USD 350.00 per villa per night on full board basis, excluding alcohol. Guests should consider that the above processes can mean a separation of individuals and may require more than one villa to be used. This will depend solely on the individual circumstances at the time.
