Foreign Ministry Issues Travel Advice for Maldives

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has issued a travel advice for Cypriot citizens who are currently in or are planning to travel to the Maldives, where a state of emergency has been declared, urging them to follow local authorities’ instructions carefully.   

The Foreign Ministry’s advice is based on an official announcement of the Maldives’ government according to which “a state of emergency has been declared by the country’s President, in place from February 5, 2018 for a period of 15 days, until peace and prosperity of citizens and foreign nationals residing or visiting the country can be safeguarded.”

“In the same announcement, the country’s government assures that businesses which have to do with tourism will not be affected nor will transport to and from or within the country be affected,” the press release continues.

“All international and local airports, hotels, tourist resorts, accommodation and marinas will remain fully operational,” the Foreign Ministry says.

“Cypriot citizens who are in or are scheduled to travel to the Maldives are urged to watch local media and to carefully follow local authorities’ instructions,” it adds.

In case of emergency or for instances where consular support is needed, Cypriot citizens may visit the website to register or may contact the following:
