There are 2 sides to the coin. The world is wide open now and people want to forget the pandemic, especially the COVID hassle. If we try to bring those policies back into action, there MIGHT be a negative wave towards us. I mean the Maldives. Tourism is very competitive. To be in the “league” we have to abide by the rules of the “league”.
On the other hand, it’s maybe good to screen tourists arriving from high-risk areas of China, to keep our industry safe and sound. We cannot afford to close the borders, ever again!
Since some countries are taking screening measures, I suggest doing an in-depth study on why and how they do, ie, are they very strict? What's the outcome? What are the procedures they use? Is it mandatory for all tourists arriving from China? So we must take all these into consideration, and then decide wisely.
Before we make any such decisions, we must have regular dialogues, with key stakeholders from both countries.
