The Maldives and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) are in the process of launching a travel corridor that will allow vaccinated travellers to move freely between the two countries. Aminath Shabeena, Maldives Ambassador to the UAE confirmed the news during a press conference at Arabian Travel Market in Dubai.



As of now, no specific date has been revealed, but Shabeena confirmed the governments of the two countries are in discussion. There are hopes the plan will be completed by early June. According to Shabeena, the plan will allow any visitors who have received two doses of any World Health Organisation-approved vaccine to travel between the two nations without the need to show PCR test results.



During the conference, Thoyyib Mohamed, Managing Director, Maldives Marketing & Public Relations Corporation, also provided further details on a ‘3V’ initiative, which will enable tourists to visit, vaccinate and vacation in the Indian Ocean archipelago. The project will begin as soon as the entire population of the Maldives has received two doses of a vaccination, which Mohamed projects could be as early as July. The country also announced plans to offer tourists the COVID-19 vaccine to boost tourism further.
