Health Requirements

Health and safety information

The health requirements for visitors to the Maldives are minimal. Foremost health requirement is a valid Cholera and Yellow Fever vaccination certificate if you have recently visited or come from a country where the diseases are endemic.

Visitors arriving within 6 days after leaving or transiting in countries with risk of yellow fever transmission, without obtaining a yellow fever vaccination certificate are subject to the vaccination upon arrival and will be quarantined for 10 days at their own expenses.

Periodically health authorities of the Maldives revise and update health requirements to control the spreading of diseases. To this end, vigilant surveillance is conducted to screen for diseases at all points of entry into the country.
