Press release on the declaration of a state of emergency in the Republic of Maldives

Thursday, 08 February 2018 13:23

On February 5, Maldives President Abdulla Yameen Abdul Gayoom declared a 15-day state of emergency in the country amid a worsening political situation after the Maldives Supreme Court ordered the release of several opposition party leaders.  

 

The confrontation between the authorities and the opposition is confined to the capital only. The situation on the archipelago islands is quiet. The transit infrastructure, including the Male airport, is functioning as usual.   

Given the above, Russian nationals are recommended to thoroughly consider if they should travel to the Maldives before the state of emergency is lifted. We strongly recommend those people who cannot postpone their trips to this destination to go straight to resorts from the airport, without driving into Male, and exercise maximum caution.
