Speaking to Mihaaru, Immigration’s spokesperson Hassan Khaleel stated that the aim of this development is to make it convenient for the expatriates employed in the southernmost three atolls to travel in and out of the Maldives via Gan Airport without the need to detour to capital Male.
To date, expatriates were permitted to travel in and out of the country only through Velana International airport (VIA). With the new arrangements, expatriates with valid visas and international passports can sldo use Gan.
However, Immigration regulations require expatriate workers coming to the Maldives for the first time to arrive at Velana International Airport.
