Immigration counter


Immigration Department has permitted Maldivians that hold both local and foreign passports to enter and depart from the Maldives on different passports.

The Civil Aviation Regulations do not specify a policy on how Maldivians may enter and exit the island nation on a foreign passport.

According to the amendment brought to the regulation by Immigration, Maldivians may now enter the Maldives on a foreign passport and leave on a local passport.

However, the amendment states that under such circumstances, Immigration will not stamp the foreign passport upon exit.
