The tropical paradise Maldives is now planning to start vaccinating tourists upon their arrival and the country’s Tourism Minister Abdulla Mausoom made the announcement for the same.

He said that the Maldives will implement a “3V Program”, which is “visit, vaccinate, and vacation.” This will help to bring tourists again to the country and help the nation reach its 1.5 million tourist arrivals goal in 2021. He further explains that nearly 350000 tourists have visited the Maldives, and most of them have been from India.

He further added that almost 90 percent of tourism frontline workers have received their first dose in the country and once everyone gets vaccinated, the country will start with their vaccination program.

Mausoom says, “The main idea of tourism being open is to provide a reasonably safe tourism [experience] with minimum inconvenience. So once the country gets vaccinated, then we will move on to ‘3V’ tourism.”

Yet there is no clarity on the timeline to vaccinate visitors, the minister informed that it wouldn’t start until after residents were vaccinated. Till now, nearly 51.5 percent of residents have received at least one dose of a vaccine while 4.8 percent have been completely vaccinated.
