Advice For Travellers

Most travellers have no safety or security problems in Maldives.

The size of this demonstration is difficult to predict since some government workers who have participated in recent protests have lost their jobs, and some citizens are now afraid to participate.

Travellers should avoid any rallies since some recent protests have been violent and arrests made. Also, the Maldivian government has specifically requested that foreigners and expatriates avoid the demonstrations.
