Maldives has been the most go-to place for everyone in the last few months. The social platforms are full with every other person’s Maldives pictures. With all this, the Maldives, a tropical paradise is successful in containing the COVID-19 in the country and still managing tourism. So, Maldives is planning to vaccinate tourists in the future. The news came up by the country’s Minister of Tourism Abdulla Mausoom.
He mentions that Maldives will implement a “3V Program”, which is “visit, vaccinate, and vacation”. This will bring travellers back and help the nation reach its 1.5 million tourist arrivals goal in 2021. As per the Minister, till now, nearly 350000 tourists have come to the Maldives, and most of them have been from India.
Adding, almost 90 percent of tourism frontline workers have received their first dose in the country. As everyone gets vaccine, the country will start with their vaccination program.
“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.”
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.
