Visa Requirements for Philippine Passport Holders – Maldives (Republic of Maldives)

Maldives is one of the few nations where Filipinos may travel to without obtaining a visa prior to arrival. A 30-day visa is issued to Filipinos upon arrival for tourist purposes, provided that they are able to present a passport which is valid for at least 6 months beyond the expected duration of the trip, proof of sufficient funds and a return or onward airline ticket. Additionally, Filipinos entering Maldives without a hotel reservation or a Maldivian sponsor must hold at least US$30 per person per day to cover the cost of intended duration of stay in the country. A disembarkation card must also be filled by every traveler and submitted to the immigration officer on entry.

Routinely, the Maldivian government approves requests for extensions to tourists who apply for them for a maximum stay of 90 days. However, overstaying without the express permission of authorities is illegal and a serious offense.

Vaccination against yellow fever is required after arriving from countries with infected areas. Those unable to present an international certificate of yellow fever vaccination will be subjected to immunization upon arrival and kept in quarantine for 10 days at his or her own expense, or may even be deported on the same flight that he or she arrived on.

Filipinos are advised to obtain up-to-date immigration requirements through:
