Maldives Residence Visa

OK, so you probably had an amazing time in the Maldives during one of your vacations in the past (or maybe even your honeymoon). At this stage, you are interested in moving there for good. Congratulations! You have officially made me jealous!

You will need to get a Resident Visa if you are interested in living in the Maldives. A Maldives Resident Visa is given to those people who have an Employment Approval (EA) issued by the Ministry of Human Resources Youth & Sports.

Full details on the process for getting a Resident Visa for the Maldives are here at the Maldives Department of Immigration and Emigration website. Just scroll down the page to see where it says “Resident Visa.”
