Tourism-dependent Maldives reopened to all tourists in July 2020. Travellers to Maldives are required to take a COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction test prior to arrival and present a valid negative test result on arrival. Tourists without symptoms do not have to be quarantined.
Currently, residents of Singapore who travel to Maldives have to serve a 14-day stay-home notice upon returning to the city-state.
Singapore is slowly reopening borders for business and leisure travel as it seeks to boost its economy and tourism amid the global COVID-19 pandemic. There are different quarantine rules for travel to Singapore from overseas countries and regions, depending on factors including the COVID-19 vaccination rate and how well the outbreak is controlled locally. Travellers are advised to check the Singapore government's SafeTravel website for the latest border measures.
Many Singaporeans are particularly interested in the newly announced Vaccinated Travel Lane arrangement with Germany – read about that here.
