The Maldives has officially reopened
The Maldives has officially reopened its borders for tourism and started welcoming guests once again. The country, which is a popular travel destination across the globe, closed its borders in late March due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
While the country saw more than 2,800 cases, medical experts in the nation are confident to conclude that the country is now safe enough to reopen up. Cases in the country have seen a significant drop for authorities to declare the situation as fully and effectively under control.
However, not leaving anything up to chance, Maldivian authorities have put in place stringent measures to ensure the safety of both locals and travelers when the country reopens.
The first commercial international flight to the Maldives since the closure of borders, a Qatar Airways flight landed at 8:27 today, carrying more than 104 tourists.
