The Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) has announced that it no longer advises against all but essential travel to the Maldives, based on the current assessment of COVID-19 risks.
The Foreign Office lifted its Covid-specific travel advice for four of the five remaining countries that were removed from the UK’s red list last week. In addition to the Maldives, Egypt, Sri Lanka, and Pakistan have been eased from The Foreign Office’ travel advice.
The Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office currently advises British nationals so they can make decisions about traveling abroad. The removal of the FCDO’s Covid-specific travel advisories is significant as an FCDO advisory against all but essential travel is typically the trigger for travelers’ insurance policies to be invalidated. UK is also traditionally one of the top tourist markets in the Maldives.
