Yachts visiting the Maldives in the Indian Ocean can now stay 180 days, double the previous limit, according to Mohamed Hameed of Asia Pacific Superyachts Maldives.


“If the boat is registered in IMO, the stay can be extended up to 270 days in total,” Hameed said. According to immigration law, however, “Crews should fly to another country within 90 days for an extension and on return they will get an additional 30 days free of charge and 60 days with extension, same as the first time. This can be repeated.”
