Maldives offers unlimited assistance and conveniences to all businessmen and investors. The right partnerships between overseas investors and Maldivian businesses have led to astounding commercial success. The number of foreign companies investing in the Maldives is growing in areas such as manufacturing and exporting, creation of well known hotels and managing resorts. This is contributed to the amazing success investors combined with our legendary culture of innovation and excellence.
The Maldives offers a clear security policy for all foreign investors.
Foreign investors are offered a transparent policy environment under article
25/79 of the law on foreign investments, guaranteeing the security of investments. In addition our liberal trade environment, dynamic private sector and development-oriented legal structure all contribute to a conducive climate for trade and investment.
The Maldives has a strong record of political stability resulting from homogenous nature of our society with one culture, one religion and one language. Thus the ethnic and political unrest that can disrupt economic activities elsewhere are practically non-existent in the Maldives.
The country is an income tax and corporate tax haven. The vast untapped potential in natural marine resources and the young, energetic and trainable workforce are strong inducements to invest in the Maldives, as has been proven by many successful foreign investors.
Foreign Investors may choose either of the following business arrangements when investing in the Maldives:

we have been involved vastly in the Travel Tourism & Hospitality Industry for the last 10 years in the Maldives
During all those years of point blank observation we have realized that the following types of investments can reward us quite handsomely
Remote Island Resort operation in the Maldives
Investing to open a Resort Hotel in the Maldives: 50 - 80 rooms (estimated 30 million us$ for 20 years)
Total investment to be covered is estimated within minimum 5 - 6 years depending on the markets and rates we sell the rooms annually and the remaining 14 years relax on the sunny beach counting the profits.
An excellent opportunity, for investment in the Maldives. Payback, within 6 years.
Safari vessel operation in the Maldives
Investing to build a safari vessel for operation in the Maldives: 12 rooms (24 pax) (2.5 million us$)
Total investment will be covered within maximum 2-3 years and for the next 10 - 15 years it’s all profits until the vessel is unusable for operation.
It’s estimated starting from a single safari it’s quite common practice in the Maldives that every 2 year another extra vessel is build by the safari operators due to the high profitability and quick coverage of the investment.
On a personal note I am a total craze when it comes for safari operation. I need a foreign partner to invest for this project as 50% shareholders each. I can take the full responsibility of managing plus operating the safari in the Maldives and market to European clients from Australia, Germany, France, USA, China, and some other more countries. This is Jack pot business in Maldives now
