A negative PCR test result is necessary upon arrival, and you must stay at the same resort for your entire stay. Of course, getting to this tropical paradise can be difficult as international flight selection is slimmer than usual.

Travel restrictions imposed in Male as Maldives grapples with COVID-19 (Xinhuanet, 05.08.2020).

International Restrictions:
Commercial flights are now operating to and from Maldives on a limited number of routes. Maldives reopened its borders on 15 July. Effective from 10 September, all tourists and short term visitors must present a negative PCR test for COVID-19 on arrival to Maldives. The test and negative PCR certificate must be issued no more than 72 hours prior to departure. Restrictions have been lifted for people who have in the last 14 days been to mainland China (not including Hong Kong), Iran, South Korea (North Gyeongsang and South Gyeongsang provinces), Italy, Bangladesh, Spain, Germany (the federal states of Bavaria, North Rhine-Westphalia and Baden-Württemberg), France (Île-de-France and Grand Est regions), Malaysia Sri Lanka and UK. All cruise ships are currently banned from entering and docking in the Maldives. Entry of all safari boats, yachts and other passenger vessels arriving to Maldives from an overseas location is restricted indefinitely. All travellers to the Maldives must fill in a Traveller Health Declaration 
form 24 hours before departure to the Maldives. All passengers and airline crew are also required to complete an Immigration Arrival Card when arriving in the Maldives.
Temperature checks and screening procedures will be in place on arrival. Quarantine facilities have been set up to isolate any suspected cases of COVID-19. Travellers presenting symptoms of COVID-19 upon arrival will be subjected to a PCR test at the traveller’s cost or at the cost of the tourist facility where the traveller is booked to stay in the Maldives. Additionally, local health authorities may conduct random testing, at no cost to travellers. All non-tourist passengers travelling to Maldives by air (such as residents and returning students) are required to self-isolate for 14 days and register on the Haalubelun portal 
here. These requirements do not apply to tourists and the Government has said it has no plans to quarantine tourists on arrival. All visitors to Maldives are encouraged to install the contact tracing application ‘Trace Ekee’ upon or before arrival into the country.
