Overview

Security status

We advise you to exercise a high degree of caution in Maldives, particularly on Malé Island.

Latest Travel Alert

Particular caution is advised on Malé Island due to the possibility of civil unrest. Avoid any protests, demonstrations or large gatherings, as outbreaks of violence may occur, and pay close attention to your personal security at all times.

There is currently an outbreak of Zika Virus (a dengue-like mosquito-borne disease) in Central and South America, the Caribbean and other locations including the Maldives. Infection with Zika virus has been increasingly linked with a serious birth condition called microcephaly where the baby is born with an abnormally small head and/or brain damage. If you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant, and plan to travel to areas affected by the Zika Virus, you are advised to discuss your travel plans with your healthcare provider and to consider postponing your travel to affected areas. Irish Citizens are advised to follow the advice of the Health Protection Surveillance Centre.

Emergency Assistance

Because there is no Irish Embassy or Consulate in the Maldives, we’re limited in the help we can offer you in an emergency. However, if you need assistance, you can contact the Irish Embassy in New Delhi.

We suggest you learn as much as you can about the Maldives before your trip from travel agents, tour operators and guide books. The best help is often close at hand so if you have problems when you’re in the Maldives, try talking to your local contacts, tour operator representative or hotel management.
