The Maldives is expected to be transferred from the United Kingdom’s red list to the amber list following a decline in COVID-19 cases, according to a UK travel expert.
Travelers from countries on the amber list who are fully vaccinated will not be compelled to spend a mandatory quarantine period in the UK.
The UK government’s next update on the traffic light travel system, the COVID-19 travel review, is set to be published next Wednesday.
While the Maldives’ COVID-19 situation had improved significantly by the beginning of August, the UK government has not removed the country from the red list in the most recent COVID-19 travel review.
The United Kingdom was a major source market for the Maldives tourism industry, but that has changed considerably since the Maldives was included to the red list.
