The announcement further reads that agencies that do not follow through to submit their annual reports by the deadline will have their permits revoked.

While failure to submit reports will lead to the termination of permits as stated under the guidelines set for Travel Agencies, the permission to run the agency law also mandates agencies to submit an annual report in order to continue operations.

Ministry statistics reveal that there are 384 Travel Agencies currently registered and operational in the country.

Travel Agencies are a proven crucial source of revenue for Maldives which is promoted through global fairs.
