State of Emergency in Maldives has been declared in the Maldives, lots of political activities happening here, but as an Expat working here, I am not supposed to be a part of these political activities.
Emergency in Maldives – 2018
Life is almost normal for most of the expatriates working in the Maldives. All Government offices, private shops and almost everything is normal. We have been advised by the Indian High Commission not to move around and follow the rules of emergency. My office attendindian high commisionance is 100% and everything is fine.
Earlier in 2015 we had an Emergency declared but was lifted soon. Now here it’s a real political crisis and hope things get sorted in the best possible way for the people of Maldives. If such situation continues, the tourism would be very much effected and the main source of Income for Maldives is tourism / resorts and related business.
How does this impact the expatriates working in the Maldives?
There are expatriates from about 50 plus countries working in the Maldives. There are also a good number of Indians working in the Maldives. As of now, nothing much, but there would be strong impact on this.
Please keep watching this post, I will keep updating about the impact of emergency in the Maldives on foreign workers
