As the global COVID situation improves, people are regaining their trust through other journeys. The Maldives is the most popular place of the year! The city has registered 905,000 tourists arriving in 2021 (so far). The Asian island nation is becoming the safest place to visit amid the ongoing COVID-19 infection.

The data is shared by the Maldives Ministry of Tourism. He added, the number of tourists entering the country increased by 122.5 percent compared to 2020 due to travel restrictions and restrictions for foreign tourists. But tourist arrivals in 2021 are themselves a record in terms of disease status.

Based on the data, tourists from India, Russia, and Germany alone have 23 percent, 19.4 percent, and 6.3 percent, followed by France, Kazakhstan, Spain, Ukraine, the UK, and the United States.

The country closed international border crossings for three months in 2020. Then, in July 2020, the borders reopened and allowed passengers to enter amid severe COVID-19 resistance.

Also in May 2021, when the second wave of COVID-19 hit the world, the Maldives completely closed its borders with South Asian countries. It wasn’t until July 2021 that the country started accepting foreign tourists.
