Maldives Travel Health Advice
Visitors to the Maldives should take precautions against mosquito bites as cases of dengue fever and Chikungunya virus have been reported. Visitors who will be spending a lot of time outdoors and are at risk of animal bites may be advised to get a rabies vaccination.
There is a good private hospital on Malé and medical facilities are available on all the resort islands. In the event of diving emergencies, a decompression chamber is available. Travel insurance is advised for travel to the Maldives.
If you require certain medications on holiday it is best to take them with you, in their original packaging, with a dated and signed letter from your doctor detailing what the medication is and why you need it.
