Advice For Travellers

Small street protests have been occurring regularly since the arrest of the former president in February 2015. To minimize safety risk, avoid all areas of large gatherings, rallies or protests. These protests in Maldives have turned violent in the past. The government has requested that all foreigners or expatriates avoid the protests.
