Why you should visit the Maldives as a Digital Nomad

The Maldives extends to 1196 islands in total and there is a good reason that this place is a dream destination for many travelers from all over the world. It’s because the beaches are beautiful, the water is crystal clear, and the resorts are breathtaking! Also, the climate is constantly warm and tropical, and there is usually a high level of humidity. But the best of all: in this dream location you can actually work as a digital nomad. Let’s find out what the Maldives has to offer for digital nomads!

The Maldives is well-known for their luxury hotels. Due to the pandemic, however, they have had some losses, as travel was limited. That’s why some hotels decided to come up with a new idea called the “Unlimited Stays in Paradise”. This package was created out of necessity and makes it possible to stay in a luxury resort for a year and also work remotely from there. The $ 30,000 package includes room, breakfast, transportation, and discounts.

If you would like to work and live in the Maldives, but don’t have the money for a luxury resort, the city of Male might be an option for you. The capital of the Maldives is the economic center of the country. Male is best known for its historic mosques and colorful buildings. There are also some accommodations here that are more affordable than luxury hotels. The first coworking space in the Maldives is to be opened here soon.

Visa for Digital Nomads

When you enter the Maldives, you will be issued a tourist visa for 30 days free of charge. You can extend your visa later and stay in the country for up to 90 days.

The islands of the Maldives are a paradise – and they just invite you to have a good time. It doesn’t matter whether you want to relax on one of the beautiful beaches, swim in the sea or do extensive yoga. The Maldives makes it possible for you!

For yoga lovers there are wonderful spots in the Maldives. Yoga is practiced here by the sea, by the pool, with a view of the ocean, in a pavilion in the jungle or in a lagoon. Most hotels offer yoga with trained yogis. But there is also a lot to see here for enthusiastic divers and water sport lovers.

What to eat in the Maldives

In the Maldives, of course, people eat what the surrounding area has to offer: fish is often on the menu. Another dish is the dried fish, it tastes intense and is often combined with other dishes. Worth trying! Also, tuna rolls are considered a holiday dish. The rolls are flavored with coriander, cumin, and chili.

If you are a vegetarian or a vegan, don’t worry! You’ll also find something to eat here because the plant-based cuisine is growing in the Maldives. For example, vegetable curries or dishes with local fruits are prepared for people who do not want to eat meat or fish.
