maldives tour

self guided tour

Sunny, unique and unspoiled, the Maldives is a sovereign archipelagic nation that needs little introduction! Pure paradise awaits you in the form of stunning beach front resort accommodation, a secluded island resort, fascinating local culture and beautiful marine life. Oh, and don’t forget the action packed day full of water activities.

Arriving Visa

The journey from Colombo to Male airport takes roughly one hour. Thankfully, entry into the Maldives does not require a prior visa and based on immigration requirements, entry permits will be granted on arrival. Visitors of all nationalities are granted entry with free 30 day visa if they possess:

  • a valid international travel document issued by a sovereign state’s government
  • a valid return air ticket and necessary visas to a destination where the passenger has permission to enter
  • a minimum of US$30.00 per person per day or confirmed hotel reservation for the intended period of stay in the Maldives

The currency used in the Maldives is the Rufiyaa (Rf) however most visitors never even see rufiyaa, as US dollars are accepted everywhere. We highly encourage you to take and spend USD as you will not be able to convert Sri Lankan rupees back to your home currency on your return.


Alcohol in the Maldives The Maldives is an Islamic nation and alcohol can only be enjoyed in the privacy of a resort or at the airport.
