We are pleased to confirm that the Maldives officially opened its borders for tourists July 15, 2020. Updated guidelines for safely restarting have been published. These guidelines are updated and revised on a regular basis. In this blog we will keep you updated of all the developments.

The management of Carpe Diem Maldives has prepared revised SOP’s to adhere to guidelines issued by the local authorities and will inform all parties concerned accordingly of all the changes. The hopefully temporary revisions will apply to check in procedures and timings, on board services. liability releases etc. Please therefore read our FAQ page prior to joining us and prepare any documents necessary (see below) for check in in advance to avoid any issues.

In accordance to health requirements from the Maldives authorities, all travellers travelling to and from Maldives are required to submit a self-declarative health declaration within 24 hours prior to their departure.

Allied Insurance Company in association with the Ministry of Tourism, has launched a Covid-19 insurance policy focusing on tourists who visit Maldives.

The covid-19 Insurance policy namely as Allied Inbound consists of two options that covers medical charges, isolation facility charges, emergency medical transportation charges and interment charges which may follow a positive diagnosis for Covid-19 of a tourist during their stay in Maldives. This plan only includes isolation centers designated by HPA.

A willing tourist should apply for this plan prior to entering the country. This plan is now available for tourists on Allied Insurance’s website. More details about this plan will also be available on and the toll free hotline 1600.

Our boats started cruising again as of August 2020 onwards. Bookings for half charters and full charters can be confirmed immediately and for individually booked trips we need a min. of 8 to 10 people to have confirmed in order to be able to guarantee the trip. Guaranteed trips are marked in our schedules and as balance payments are due only 30 days before start of the trips, we keep on updating them. With the current uncertainly and many people still not able to or allowed to travel by their respective governments, coming months will be tough, so please bear with us. We are really looking forward to welcoming our regular guests back again and welcome new guests.
