Maldivian people can travel to China without visa

Maldivian citizens will no longer need a visa to travel to China after the Kavid epidemic. An agreement was signed between the two countries on Saturday. Under this, they can go to China without a visa and stay for up to 30 days.

Five agreements were reached in the Maldivian capital, Male, in the presence of Foreign Minister Abdullah Shahid and Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi, including visa waiver. The Foreign Ministers of Maldives and China jointly unveiled the special logo of the golden jubilee of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi arrived in Male last Friday as part of a tour of Eritrea, Kenya, Comoros, Maldives and Sri Lanka. He is visiting the Maldives at a time when the elite campaign against the Indian military presence in the Maldives has intensified. Analysts are also paying special attention to the visit to the Maldives against the backdrop of China's growing influence in the region.

The Maldivian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Monday that it had signed four more agreements with China, including visa waivers. Among them, the economic and technical assistance agreement has given importance to grant assistance in social, livelihood and infrastructure projects.

A letter of exchange has been signed to study the management and maintenance of the Sino-Maldives Friendship Bridge. The 1.4-kilometer-long bridge, which connects Hullumale Island with Mal, was built with the help of ২০ 200 million from China during the tenure of former President Abdullah Yameen.

President Abdullah Yameen is seen as close to China. And that bridge is China's flagship project in the Maldives. China owes the Maldives about ১৪ 1.4 billion in loans in the past. The government of current Maldivian President Ibrahim Salihar wants to restructure China's debt.

According to the Maldivian Foreign Ministry, a supplementary work order was also signed during the Chinese Foreign Minister's visit to the Maldives to implement a Chinese-funded seawater desalination project. In addition, an agreement has been reached between the Maldives and the Chinese Ministry of Health on cooperation in the field of hospital establishment.

Meanwhile, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi visited Sri Lanka from Maldives yesterday. Sri Lanka is now in an economically fragile state.
