Shipping to Maldives
It is strongly advisable that you get some insurance on your shipment when sending them to the Republic of Maldives as well as a tracking number. This will not only give you some peace of mind, but will allow you to have some recourse if anything were to happen along the way. You will want to keep in mind that this is an island chain so that once your parcels reach the country, it may be more time before they can reach a particular island that it is destined for at the end.
Customs in Maldives
It is best to check with their Customs department before you ship to the Republic of Maldives for their most up to date of regulations. This way you will know if what you want to send to send there is even allowed to be admitted to the country and what paperwork you will need to send along with it.
Security concerns when shipping to Maldives
The main concern in regards to security when shipping to the Republic of Maldives pertains to piracy against some of their vessels headed there. This chain of islands depends greatly on its ports for goods being shipped in and out alike, so the seas are of vital importance. Unfortunately there is only so much that can happen to ensure the safety of these vessels. The government there, and in surrounding countries, have put in place procedures for dealing with piracy but they do not seem to be able to curb the practice altogether.
