Entry Restrictions in the Maldives
A tourist visa is granted for all nationalities on arrival to the Maldives. As such, a foreigner travelling to the Maldives as a tourist does not require pre-approval for the visa. However, the person must satisfy the basic entry requirements to get immigration clearance upon arrival.
The basic entry requirements are as follows:
A passport or a travel document with Machine Readable Zone (MRZ) with at least 1 months validity; and
A pre-paid hotel booking/accommodation for the entire stay; and
Sufficient funds to last for the intended period of stay in Maldives; and
Confirmed onward/return tickets to home country or to country of residence (not applicable for valid resident permit holders); and
Entry facilities to their onward destinations; for example, the visa.

Passengers travelling as tourists must have a hotel reservation confirmation for the entire stay in a registered tourist facility.
The maximum number of days granted on arrival would be 30 days, unless agreed by any bilateral means or treaty. This period of stay is not for the visitor to claim, but lies at the discretion of the Maldives Immigration to grant any number of days less than or equal to 30.
The period of stay granted is shown on the endorsement in the passport. Visitors are advised to check their passport for the arrival endorsement and take note of the number of days granted to stay in Maldives. Once arrived as a tourist, the visitor is not permitted to engage in any form of business, occupation, profession or paid employment while in Maldives.
