Arriving in the Maldives

What you should expect on arrival?

The first surprise: Male International Airport is an island by itself! Next , your holiday starts right there. A 30-day tourist visa is granted on arrival. If Port health is satisfied that you have not been through any countries with serious contagion, you are in.

After luggage retrieval, do note that there is no Green Channel. All passengers luggage is screened, normally electronically. Keep the keys handy in case a manual inspection is called for. You may be asked whether you have any movies or CD’s. Answer all questions in a straightforward manner.

After Immigrations and Customs proceed to arrivals. A representative of your host resort will normally receive you. If no one meets you, ask at the information counter. If you need a reservation, approach a properly identified representative of a local agency.

After reception a quick boat or seaplane will take to your adventure in the Maldives.

  1. If you are looking for great amenities while you are on vacation, the El Cid Vacation is one option for you to look forward to. When it comes to security, you will not have to worry about the safety of the whole community because the entrances for these resorts have gates and a 24-hour security to serve people on a daily basis. If you find living in El Cid resorts an excellent choice for you and your family so you can build new relationships with the community, you'll absolutely find this an excellent option for you to look into.
