Maldives has extended the validity of Business Visa to up to 180 days in a 12-month period.
According to a revision to the Business Visa Regulation, Business Visa will be issued to applicants for up to 180 days in a Gregorian calendar year.
The visa will be issued to applicants for 30-90 days at a time.
Business Visa was previously issued for only up to 90 days in a 12-month period.
The regulation has also been revised to stipulate that if the visa holder fails to enter Maldives within three months of issuance, the visa will be cancelled.
Business Visa was previously cancelled if the visa holder failed to enter Maldives within six months of issuance.
Applications for Business Visa can be submitted to Economic Ministry’s Business Portal.
