Now travel to Maldives visa-free for 90 days
New Delhi: With the union cabinet giving its ex-post facto approval to the agreement on the facilitation of visa arrangements signed between the two countries last month, Indians can travel visa-free for 90 days to Maldives.
"The agreement provides for 90-day visa-free travel for tourism, medical and limited business purpose and also provides for easy conversion of such visa-free entry to medical visa as well as visas for dependents of students and those pursuing employment in each other's territories," said an official statement.
The decision would make it easier for Maldivian and India nationals to travel to each other's countries for tourism, medical treatment, education as well as business and employment.
The Visa Facilitation Agreement was signed in December 2018, during the visit of Maldivian President to India, with an aim to deepen people-to-people exchanges between the two countries.
