Maldives Travel Advisory


Dear Valued Guest

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

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.

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 USD 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 72 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
Guests who test positive and are symptomatic or 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 the isolation period specified are required to continue their isolation until 24 hours after symptoms have cleared.

The isolation period specified above will come to an end upon submission of a Negative Antigen Test done at the end of the seventh day of isolation from the date of sample collection.

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, guests will have to take a PCR test or a Rapid Antigen Test and can only be released upon receiving a negative test result. This quarantine will be in a separate location to the individual who has tested positive.

Guests who are identified as being in direct contact of a positive case and quarantined separately from the positive case will have to be in quarantine till the positive case of COVID-19 completes their isolation period.

Guests who are identified as being in direct contact of a positive case will have to do an additional PCR test after 5 days from the date of last contact with the said positive case.
The quarantine period above can come to an end upon submission of a negative PCR test done at end of isolation period of the positive case of COVID-19.

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.

Whilst it is regretful that your vacation plan may be interrupted, your health, safety and wellbeing remain our utmost priority and we are committed to ensuring that you receive access to the best possible medical care and facilities for recovery.
