This microsite includes the number of tourist industry staff vaccination as well as information regarding registration for vaccination of employees and the latest HPA guidelines. In addition, the microsite will include updates from the campaign as well as promotional videos, pictures and stories that reflect the immense efforts undertaken by the tourist establishment aligned with the campaign.
Visit Maldives requests industry partners to provide their vaccination updates, news, press releases, images, videos, and other necessary information to firstname.lastname@example.org to ensure that all industry news regarding the vaccination campaign is covered on the microsite.
His Excellency President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih launched the COVID-19 Dhifaau campaign on 1st February 2021 with the aim to provide free COVID-19 vaccines to all citizens and residents of the country. As of 23rd June 2021, 96% of resort employees have received the first dose of the vaccine while 70% of the resort employees are fully vaccinated.
During April 2021, Visit Maldives in collaboration with the Ministry of Tourism launched the "I'm Vaccinated" campaign in order to share a positive message regarding the vaccination of staff working in the tourism sector as well as promoting the initiatives undertaken to ensure the Maldives remains one of the safest destinations in the world for travelers.
Under this campaign, the ultimate target is to make Maldives the first fully vaccinated tourism sector in the world. Along with the unique geographical formation of the islands which offer natural physical distancing, and the stringent health and safety measures in place, a fully vaccinated tourism sector will become an added advantage in encouraging tourists to visit the destination.
The campaign will uplift the destination's beautiful name in the global market and reassure travelers that Maldives will further remain as one of the safest destinations to travel to during this unprecedented time. In addition, the campaign will also assure travelers from all over the world of the immense effort and investment into ensuring the safety of both the local population and travelers.
Maldives reopened its borders for tourists of all nationalities on 15th July 2020, with rigorous procedures in place to ensure the safety of tourists and tourism workers. Tourists are required to fill an online health declaration form within 24 hours prior to their departure, as well as have a negative PCR test result, conducted 96 hours prior to their departure.
