These Maldivian resorts are offering PCR exit screening in villas

Leading tourist destinations and airlines are making significant efforts to encourage holidaymakers to book, and CROSSROADS Maldives – a multi-island destination in the Indian Ocean – is going the extra mile.

With two of its fabulous resorts back up and running – SAii Lagoon Maldives and Hard Rock Hotel Maldives – it has recently introduced PCR exit screening without having to travel out of the resorts and visit a testing facility.

Thanks to its well-equipped clinic with a doctor and nurse based at The Marina at CROSSROADS, you can completely unwind knowing that you’ll have everything you need to safely return to Dubai. The test can be carried out at the clinic or in your villa and then will be sent to Male for analysis.

Priced at $162 (approximately Dhs595) per person, reports will be received via email and delivered straight to your door.

Right now, CROSSROADS Maldives is offering a ‘Stay 3 Pay 2’ package, allowing you to purchase vouchers that can be redeemed any time before October 31 2021 – ideal for those who are still unsure of when they can travel. The package also includes a free night stay for each consecutive two nights booked.  Complimentary activities such as Sunrise Yoga, Coral Propagation Programme, Aqua gym and cocktail class are offered at SAii Lagoon Maldives.

The Maldives lifted all COVID-19 travel restrictions on 15 July, requiring only a health declaration form from international travellers, without mandatory quarantine or testing on arrival.

Since August 1 passengers coming into Dubai have to obtain a negative PCR test before flying. Test requirement is applied to anyone flying into Dubai, whether as a tourist, resident, or connecting passenger.

Those coming from will need to have an additional test done upon landing in Dubai and self-isolate until they receive their results.
