Most times, the stress people go through to acquire visas for their vacations make them give up. Some countries with tight borders would one day realise the borders mean nothing but rather denying them of their tourism revenue.
There are other countries that provide same or more fun than most countries with tight immigration policies. As a travel blogger, I always prefer visiting visa-free countries rather than spending months trying to obtain visa for a specific country which may even turn out to be denied.
Maldives is one country that provides so much fun that one may want to extend his stay only if the pockets would permit. All nationals can travel to Maldives visa-free for a stay up to 30 days , in exception of Bruneian citizens who can apply for a visa on arrival. After falling in love with the country, you can then extend your stay 60 days more for a small fee.
If there are no direct flights from your country to the capital Male, travelers could easily obtain Indian Visas online to make a stopover in India to catch a cheap flight to Maldives. Fares from India’s Trivandrum are as low as $180.
This tropical nation in the Indian Ocean is made up of several islands. Its beaches and blue lagoons are very inviting and non-swimmers are tempted to to learn swimming and even scuba-dive.
There is no welcome than a 45-minute boat ride to your island after exiting the airport.
