According to a statement from Visit Maldives, the tiny island nation will begin reopening to tourists on July 15. On this date, all resorts and hotels on uninhabited islands will be open again, however hotels and resorts on inhabited islands will have to wait until Aug. 1.

The Maldives is well-known for its idyllic accommodations that include access to gorgeous sandy beaches, crystal clear ocean waters, and luxury suites. Some resorts even have packages that allow you to reserve entire islands all for you and your group (for a considerable fee, of course).

The islands are also highly dependent on tourism in order to boost their economy. “The tourism industry… accounts for the largest foreign exchange earnings, making it the biggest economic contributor in the country,” it says in the statement from Visit Maldives. “However, it has come to a standstill due to the stringent public health measures taken to curb COVID-19. The tourism industry has been gearing up to restart; it is set to resume in compliance to protective measures, taking into account the safety of tourists and staff working in the industry.”
