IMUGA Maldives offers numerous benefits to travellers, including the ability to submit their travel declaration online before their arrival, allowing Maldivian authorities to better plan and manage traveller flows. Additionally, using IMUGA helps reduce queues at the airport.

Validity of IMUGA Traveller Declaration

The traveller’s declaration is a one-time-use form that you must complete for each visit to the Maldives to present it to the Maldivian immigration office. This requirement applies to tourists, visa holders, and Maldivian citizens. It is important to note that this form is not a substitute for the visa required to enter the country. Furthermore, please note that you will receive a 30-day visa on arrival if you enter the Maldives as a tourist.

Submission of IMUGA for Departures

It is important to note that IMUGA must also be filled out by travellers leaving the Maldives, not just those entering. Travelers must submit their travel declaration before their planned departure to facilitate immigration procedures at the time of departure.

In summary, IMUGA offers a more efficient and secure travel experience, whether entering or leaving the Maldives, thereby contributing to making the immigration process smoother and less stressful for all travellers.
