Ambassador has stated that majority of the work will be done in the upcoming three to four months.

Maldivians have to currently apply for Schengen visa by travelling to Colombo, Srilanka. However, EU officials sometimes travel to the Maldives for the visa application process.

A lot of Maldivians are living in EU countries to pursue their higher studies, and a lot of Maldivians visit EU countries for vacation as well.
