Along with this, we will also see how to reach the Maldives from India. Which are the best islands to explore in the Maldives? And last but not least a quick go-through on Maldives tourism from India.

Reaching Maldives from India

There are two ways by which you can reach Maldives from India, one is waterways via sea and the other is through airways via flights. Let us look at each of them briefly. We will focus on how to reach the Maldives from Delhi.

Via Sea

Traveling via sea from Delhi is not an available option as Delhi is a land-covered city from all sides. But what can be done is to go to ports like Kochi or Mumbai from Delhi. Then from these ports, you will get a cruise to Maldives. The cruise will take from around 3 to 7 days to reach the Maldives. Though it is quite a long journey, you will get a totally different traveling experience and a mini cruise vacation as well. This will add up to your vacation memories in the Maldives.

Via Flight

Airways are the easiest way to travel from Delhi to the Maldives. It takes around 5 hours to reach the main airport of the Maldives, that is the Velana International Airport at Hulhule. But if you will travel via connecting flights then it may take a little longer to reach your destination. From the international airport, you can take either a speedboat or seaplane to travel to your final destination in the Maldives.  But for traveling both ways you need a passport with a minimum of 6 months validity. Besides, you would need a visa which cost 0 INR for a stay of 30 days in Maldives. But if you extend your stay to 90 days, you need to pay around 3500 INR for the extension of your visa. Once you have your passport in hand, at the arrival counter upon passport and other documents checking, you will be given the visa with 30 days stay validity.

Currency conversion in the Maldives

The national currency of the Maldives is the Maldivian Rufiyaa (MVR). Although MVR is used around the Maldives, for tourism reasons the dollar and euro are the preferred currencies in most of the hotels, resorts, spas, and shops there. The conversion rate of INR to MVR is around 5INR for 1 MVR but for dollar and euro, it's around 15.5MVR and 18MVR respectively.

This conversion rate of the currencies varies regularly, so it is very important that you carry a sufficient balance in your account during your vacation to the Maldives. This will ensure a hassle-free tourism experience for you in the Maldives.
