Maldives Launches New Tourism Vaccination Drive

Visit Maldives alongside the Ministry of Tourism has launched the “I’m Vaccinated”.

The project aims to share a positive message regarding the vaccination of staff working in the tourism sector as we as promoting the initiative to ensure the Maldives remains one of the safest destinations in the world for travellers.

The ultimate target of this campaign is to ensure the Maldives is the first fully vaccinated tourism sector in the world.

Along with the unique geographical formation of the islands which offer natural physical distancing, and the stringent health and safety measures in place, a fully vaccinated tourism sector will become an added advantage in encouraging tourists to visit the destination.

On 1st February 2021, Maldives initiated the administration of the COVID-19 vaccine, and the government aims to provide free COVID-19 vaccine to all citizens and residents of Maldives in the upcoming months.
 
The initiation of the vaccination drive is bound to offer hope to the local population, as well as ensure the safety of tourists. This conveys the message that Maldives is a low-risk destination for travelers and will hopefully generate a surge in tourist arrival.
