Ireland’s “Traffic Light System” and what it means for traveling to Maldives


As of 09 November, Ireland has agreed to follow the EU Traffic Light System, which finally brings some clarity, consistency & transparency in relation to travel.

So, what does this mean for travel to Maldives ? Well to put it quite simply, it means you can travel to Maldives and on your return to Ireland, there is no need to quarantine for 14 days provided you have a Covid Negative PCR Certificate taken no later than 72 hours prior to returning to Ireland.

Following our recent visit to Maldives in October, we are happy to share with you our experience and details of what documents you require to visit Maldives :

  1. To enter Maldives you need a Negative PCR test with Certificate. This can be arranged in Dublin from Randox Laboratories >> for €99 or Nationwide at the Tropical Medical Bureau for €180 >>> The PCR test Must be done no later than 96 hrs before departure from Ireland.
  2. Face masks must be worn for duration of flight and in airports.            ( except when eating and drinking )
