Working in Maldives

: 154 + 0 + 0 = 154

I had wrote a post on jobs in Maldives last month as I was in need from candidates for my company. I got good response and in fact I could fill up all the vacancies in no time. I am writing this post to help job seekers who would like to work in Maldives. There are about 50,0000 expatriates working in the Maldives and I see individuals from more than 40 countries working here. The majority are from India, Srilanka, Philippines, Bangladesh.

There are chances of Jobs in Maldives in different industries here

Tourism and Hotel Industries

There are about 90 resorts in Maldives and 10-15 new resorts coming up soon. If you are qualified in this industry, you can surely get a job. The salaries are good if you are working for a good resort. I have heard that there are resorts where the service charges itself come to nearly US$1000 per month. I am not in a position to give the contact details of all the resorts now. I will surely post if I come across any vacancies. I would like to tell you that there is new resort coming up in May 2008, Shangri-La where the staff strength is around 650 and the salaries are excellent. You can send your resume to

Director of Human Resources, Pre-opening office, Shangri-La’s Villingili Resort and Spa
1st Floor, MTCC Building, 181 Boduthakurufaanu Magu, Male’ 20181, Republic of Maldives OR
Send your CV and scanned photograph by e-mail to: or Fax to: + 960 332 1722



One of the most demanding industry as there are very less skilled professionals here. I find more of foreigners working in the Healthcare Industry and jobs in this field are more available

Vacancies can be found at

Ministry of Health – There are lots of vacancies with the Health Ministry, Maldives. You can find more information at

Indira Gandhi Memorial Hospital – IGMH is the biggest government hospital in Maldives and there are a good number of professionals working here. Usually the foreigners working here are on 1 year contract, which may or may not be renewed. They have vacancies for Nurses, Consultants, Medical officers, laboratory technicians, radiographers, etc. Usually they announce this in major news papers and they have recruiting agents who take care of their requirements. You will have to pay the prescribed fees to the agents if you are going through them. There are lots of direct recruitment going on here, so just send your resume to the HR department.

Adk Hospital is the leading private hospital in Maldives. You can contact them by sending an email or the address is

Phone : +960-3313553


Private clinics – There are about 7-8 private clinics in Male’, where you can find vacancies for laboratory technicians, Medical officers, Radiographers, Nurses.


There are more than 1000 foreign teachers working here in Maldives. There are lots of schools in Maldives and the number of vacancies are very high. You may have to work in some remote islands, and if you are lucky, you may get a job in Male’ , the capital of Maldives. If you are working in Male’, you can earn good by taking tutions. Majority of the teachers earn, 2-3 times the amount they get as their fixed salary. In islands, you do not get this earnings, but you will be getting island allowance, which does not really compensate the income from tutions


There are a lot of requirement in construction field as there are lots of new projects coming up and existing projects. Lots of new multi-storied buildings coming up, so the chances for job in this field are high. There are lots of construction companies in Maldives

For recruitment, most of the companies and institutions depend on Man power suppliers, but you can apply directly also. I have seen that many take the risk of coming to Maldives as a tourist, attend to different interviews, get a job, go back and enter with the work permit. If you need any information, you can freely ask me. If you would like to be updated, when I do the next post, you can subscribe to my news letter so that you get my posts by email

[box style="orange announcement rounded" ]Please note that I do not deal with any recruitment and I get a lot of requests for this. Please contact the relevant departments directly[/box]

  • Dr Manikuntal Ghosh

    Dear Sir. good Morning. I have applied a job of Physiotherapist in Maldives through an agent in Chennai , India . My application has been approved by MOH , Maldives on 14 th April , 2013. On 15 the April , 2013 i have applied for pre – registration for Maldives Medical Council through that very agent in Chennai. Now its more than 40 days …& i am eagerly waiting for reply from Maldives Medical Council regarding this matter. So , my agent in Chennai is unable to give me any information regarding the latest status of my application, according to the version of my agent in Chennai is : Wait and see ,. Hence i was wondering that , if its possible to followup the matter directly with the Maldives Medical Council to check the latest status of my application.

    The reason i am bit hurry , because i have got 2 more job offers from 2 other countries …so , before switching to any of them , i would like to know the decision of Maldives Medical Council regarding this matter.

    As far as i know , that to get the pre registration from Maldives Medical Council it takes around 30-40 days . But now , its more than that!!

    Kindly suggest me i should i do , should i contact the maldives medical council directly ? whether will they entertain?

    I look for your sane counsel.

    keen to hear from you sir.

    I have query and I hope you ll answer it :)
    I have an approved pre-registration from MOH ..
    what ll be the situation at airport when i arrive there …can i apply for work visa directly when I show them a copy of pre-registration form ?
    I read that to apply for work Visa I have to get work permit ..but I have pre-registration from MOH not work permit …I’m so confused about what ll gonna happen at airport ..ll they refuse to give me work visa I know I can not change tourist visa to work visa…
    shall I ask the employer to send me work visa through email then i print and show at airport or I can get work visa easily at airport ?
    please kindly let me know what shall I do :)

  • roz

    thank you kishore for the reply, please make sure , my question is , TO GET A WORK PERMIT MENTIONING THE OCCUPATION AS DOCTOR , is it necessary to get the prior registration from the council..?

    • Kishore Post author

      No, you have to get a pre-registration approval for getting a work visa, after you reach Maldives, you have to verify your original certificates and then you get the registration

  • Roz

    Please explain me is it mandatory to get a medical council registration before I get a work permit as a doctor? Or could I work without registration but only with work permit?

        Dear Kishore!
        Thanks for the reply. I have tried multiple times but no one receives phone in MOH Maldives. I have been provided Offer Letter (V. Atoll Hospital) only and no work permit etc. I called Maldives High commission in Pakistan but they said that no such dealings can be made without High commission involvement. we don’t know the status of that agent.

  • Dr R.Lingam

    Maldives is a hell for doctors .Go to any part of word , but dont come here .Here if you come ,you will be insulted & humiliated only .Working condtions are very bad .Ther is no regards for doctors in public .They think expatriates are beggers,there is no difference between a doctor and a manual labourer.The Contract does not carry any meaning [Ministry of Health] here , the hospital manager uses this as a tool to exploit the doctors. They cut the salary and allowances left and right with scant regards that this amounts to a breach of contract. What a pity being a expatriate doctor over here.

    • Amina

      i do not think what ever you are telling is true. it’s not everyone who do not respect. we do respect the doctors here.there is no way a hospital manager can cut salary and allowance. doctors are the people who are most paid here in Maldives. very often we have come across people who themselves call as doctors and come here with a false certificate. while studying when they do not pass whey just buy fake certificates and come here. i’m truly and honestly telling that we came across two doctors who said that they are both husband and wife, were working as gynecologists. some months later it was known by the ministry that they were not married and were not even real doctors.

      • dr v ganesan

        i agree that maldivian citizens are quality oriented and expect best treatment .but health administration is not in good hands both in government and in the private ADK hospital .maldives will not get good doctors unless they change their attitude1.they should not detain the passports of doctors2.they have to give smaller but decent accommodation3.they cannot expect doctors to work more than 8 hours per day and must give one day weekly off4.there are some old generation , useless doctors , who practice in maldives for a long time and these people dont allow new comers to stay for long5.the ministry and private ADK hospital depend on recruiting agency rather than the recommendations of another doctor6

    • Amina

      @ ASIFyou can be a DR by name. your style of writing will not give anyone a feeling that you are a highly professional person.that’s true that Maldives is a group of small islands, but not that all the islands are that much small. my native island is approximately 4.2km in length. ASIF if you like to stay in a large country you have the chance to live there, we are happy here in Maldives because living in a small place make our life easy. we have the opportunity to study up to Masters degree by staying here in the Maldives.about the 7th grade illiterate person working as medical officer is just a huge, extreme lie you said. A 7th grade illiterate person can never at least work in a government office as a secretary, so how can he be a medical officer. today the number of educated people has increased to an extent that now it is difficult to get a job in a government office with A’level passes. if you are in Maldives and you watch television you might have seen that in recent years Maldivian students have scored the position of 1st place in G.C.E O’level international examination among the whole world. so you cant say that we do not have educated people to the past we only had foreign doctors, but now we have local (Maldivian) doctors, and at present many Maldivian students are studying for their MBBS+specialization.people will have news of your every move in anywhere in the world. i can remember an Indian and pakistani teacher both told me that Indians and Pakistanis are very good at talking about other people and spreading rumors.Maldives is a small place, but full of natural beauty. we are happy here, all our needs are met. i can remember how i survived in pakistan while doing my MBBS.

      • Amina

        To All:i’m not telling that Maldives is a very good place to work. although the number of educated people increase, we still have reasonable number of uneducated people (uneducated here doesn’t mean illiterate. we have a record of 99.8% literate) and young people who are addicted to drugs. although they are not well educated they are not ready to accept any job. they only demand white collar jobs which is not possible. that’s the reason why majority of the expatriates work here. they work in private sector and majority of the employers do what ever they want. i can see with an eye of regretting the situation and condition of those expatriates. majority working in construction fields do not get good food to eat, good accommodation and most of all they are not well paid. i see many expatriates protesting for not getting their wages for many months. as a result they leave their work without letting their employer know, and they stay in Maldives and do what ever work to earn a small amount of money on daily basis. these expatriates then continue working illegally in the Maldives.that does not happen with the highly professional people working here as doctors, teachers, medical laboratory technologists, radiographers, nurses and consultants.

    Dear Sir,

    I would like to congratulate you for the good spirit you have by giving your time and care to help other people.
    As much, I would like to take advantage of your kindness and ask you regarding the hotel industry jobs. I am planning to leave my home country in the middle east and come to work in a good resort in the maldives.
    My question for you is regarding the basic salaries being paid, how much is the average for me to ask for..I have a 5 years experience in the Front Office-Guest Relation desk in a 5 stars boutique hotel (part of a luxurious international chain)..
    The salaries I am being offered are not good, a maximum of 900$/month or less and I have heard people in my same senior positon were offered a 2000$/month salary. It’s a huge difference..what salaries should I expect from luxurious resorts in the maldives?
    would you be so kind in replying to my email address?
    thank you so much
    have a lovely day

    Dr Ram, There are ayurvedic doctors working here, but very less, regarding posts in Government, I am not aware of that. There are some private clinics with ayurvedic doctors, but with reference to resorts, all the resorts are managed by private companies and not by the Government and usually its MBBS doctors working in resorts. Resorts do have facility like spa but I never came across ayurvedic doctors working in Spa. But I will check this out.


    Dear Sir
    Recently I came to know about some vaccancies for Ayurveda doctors in Maldives with the department of medical services for their resorts. Is Ayurveda a recognised medical system there in Maldives and is there any job vaccancy for ayurveda doctors in Maldives esp. in Govt. sector?
