Our general global COVID security measures are described in our  Travel">https://www.exodus.co.uk/travel-safety-charter">Travel Safety Charter, and changes will be made to these measures as required by the global pandemic situation. However, we also expect there to be requirements, measures and sometimes itinerary changes that apply to certain trips only, and may well be temporary measures. We have highlighted all known changes in the section below. *Entry requirements.* For all trips, having the correct documentation and visa, if required, remains the customer’s responsibility based on their own nationality. We therefore encourage all travellers to check entry requirements using the travel advice of their home nation for the relevant destination. For UK passport holders that is  https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice  In">https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice">https://www.gov.uk/foreign-tra... order to meet the new immigration requirements for Maldives you should note the following: * All travellers to the Maldives must fill in an online health declaration Traveller Health Declaration form  https://imuga.immigration.gov.mv/ethd/create" target="_blank">  before">https://imuga.immigration.gov.mv/ethd/create  before departure to the Maldives. The online health declaration form must be completed within the 24 hour period prior to arrival in the Maldives and requires your PCR certificate to be uploaded. * You will be required to produce certification proving a recent negative COVID test result. The test and negative PCR certificate must be issued no more than 96 hours prior to departure. Full details will be sent to you no later than 4 weeks before departure. * All visitors to Maldives are encouraged to install the contact tracing application ‘Trace Ekee’ upon or before arrival into the country. * Temperature checks and screening procedures will be in place on arrival. Quarantine facilities have been set up to isolate any suspected cases of COVID-19. Travellers presenting symptoms of COVID-19 upon arrival will be subjected to a PCR test at the traveller’s cost or at the cost of the tourist facility where the traveller is booked to stay in the Maldives. Additionally, local health authorities may conduct random testing, at no cost to travellers. * Please note that due to the nature of this trip and logistical challenges of travelling between areas of the Maldives, independent travel can incur a very high cost.  Public transport is not readily available, and transfers are often by private boat.  We would therefore strongly advise all customers to ensure that they have comprehensive travel insurance in place, which includes cover for COVID-19, and will cover them for these costs in the event they are required to travel to a medical facility. * Local COVID restrictions* Local regulations or guidelines in Maldives require visitors to: * Wear face mask-coverings at all times in all public places (including throughout the airport and during transfers and also required to be worn if any local islands visited) * Maintain social distancing where possible of 2 metres * Not gather in groups larger than 15 persons in public places * Currently there is a curfew in the Greater Male’ area (which includes Male’, Vilimale’ and Hulhumale’) from 12am to 4am (local time). There are no movement restrictions within the Greater Male’ area outside of these hours.  Your leader will reconfirm the latest local government advice and requirements on arrival. *Itinerary changes* The itinerary changes required due to Covid-security measures are as following: Day 3: The Whale Shark Safari will be conducted by the local tour leader and Felicity crew instead of being€companied by a member of MWSRP (Maldives Whale Shark Research Programme)  Day 7: It will be not be possible to offer the optional walking tour in Male on this day.  Please be advised, snorkelling equipment is available on-board. However, packing personal equipment you own & are familiar with ensures comfort and fit.
