The tour operator TUI is again offering trips to a popular vacation island for Germans from October 27th.

However, a travel warning still applies to them.

Although - or precisely because - the corona pandemic has ruined the vacation plans of many Germans this year, the longing for a few sunny hours on the beach * is great.

The cloudy autumn weather and the coming winter will do the rest.

At the same time, the number of corona cases is rising sharply again in most countries and, according to the Robert Koch Institute, many holiday destinations are again a risk area.

Nevertheless, some tour operators are again offering

holidays to long-haul destinations

.

One of them is TUI: The Maldives will be back on the program from October 27th.

Maldives vacation with TUI: long-distance travel is now possible again

Entry to the Maldives has been permitted again since July 15th.

However, the Federal Foreign Office declared the popular holiday island a risk area two days later, on July 17th.

Since then, most tour operators have

removed

the

Maldives

from their programs.

That is about to change:

TUI will again be offering a long-distance trip there from October 27th

.

“The Maldives are one of the most popular long-haul destinations, especially in the winter months.

Not only online, but also from travel agencies, we receive many inquiries about Maldives trips.

German vacationers want to travel to the Indian Ocean again, ”said Marek Andryszak, Chairman of the TUI Deutschland Management Board, according to the editorial network Germany.

“The spacious resorts with free-standing bungalows offer a lot of privacy and the opportunity to adhere to distance rules.

That is why we decided to offer the Maldives together with Lufthansa again despite the travel warning. ”

80 percent of TUI hotels

on the island are

open

- including Riu, Robinson and Kuramathi.

The Maldives trip with TUI can be canceled and rebooked free of charge if travelers change their minds.

Vacation in Maldives despite Corona: These rules apply

Although a travel warning is not a travel ban, a vacation in the Maldives cannot be enjoyed without obstacles.

Since September 10, tourists have to

be able to present

a

negative corona test in English

upon entry

, which was taken a maximum of 72 hours before departure.

Only children under one year old are not required to take this test.

It is also necessary to submit an electronic travel declaration, which in turn must be completed within 24 hours prior to departure.

After entry, temperature measurements and random corona tests are possible.

In addition, when returning from a risk area to Germany, a quarantine obligation of ten days applies from November 8th.

This can be terminated prematurely no earlier than five days after entry with a negative corona test.
