The Republic of Maldives is a beautiful island nation in the Indian Ocean, some 250 miles south-west of India and 430 miles to the west of Sri Lanka. Unlike other nations in the region, it has had a relatively un-tumultuous history, having been briefly controlled by the Portuguese, then Dutch empires and then the British who modified the Dutch name "Maldivische Eilanden" into the Maldives - which remains to this day.
In terms of sending parcels to the country, at the time of writing we can offer parcel delivery to the Maldives for around £32 on a 4 to 7-day service via Parcel Monkey Air Express, for roughly £35 using worldwide courier Asendia or we also offer a 3 to 6-day service via DHL Air Express. You will find our prices to be much lower than sending from the Post Office, plus you can have your parcel collected from your home or work address.
Much of the parcel volume shipped to the Maldives via Parcel Monkey is based on tourism, with left behind items being sent out to those on holiday from the UK, as well as unaccompanied luggage.
Currently the vast majority of the Maldivian economy is dominated by fish processing; in fact, a staggering 90% of their exports are from this industry. In terms of domestic income, the Maldives is heavily dependent on tourism, but this was greatly affected by the tsunami of 2004 which had a great impact on its infrastructure.
If you have a parcel to send to the Maldives, you can compare your options using our courier comparison quote engine and choose a delivery service that matches your time frame and budget.
We always state that it is essential that customers familiarise themselves the local rules of the country you are looking to send a parcel to. Sometimes, however, that customs authority doesn't publish in English their import prohibitions or duties to be paid. In this case, we always suggest that you contact the local authorities for clarification.
All aspects of the process, booking , collection, delivery were completed efficiently and within the projected timeframe.
Have to send care packages to a family member in the Maldives and cant believe the speed of the delivery. Instructions are always clear and the price is always competitive and tbh wouldnt trust any other carrier as they have proved themselves worthy!
Monkey Parcel is by far the best and cheapest option when it comes to shipping items all over the world. For me it was the from the UK to the Maldives, which is usually very expensive! Everything went very smoothly and the package was picked up on the day requested, I was able to track my items every step of the way and it arrived on the day that was estimated. I will defiantly use this service again. Thank you!
The service was brilliant but instead of waiting at home for the whole day so the parcel could be picked up, it would have been good to have an approximate time for pick up.
Brillant service with quick delivery to the Maldives. Will recommend and use again
Excellent Service first class will use again
Im happy to use Parcel Monkey as it easy, simple and quick way of sending any size of parcel. I used them from a 2 to 25 kg items.
Maybe they could do better on the prices
The last few times I have used Parcel monkey I was really disappointed but all I can say is well done, you’ve upped your game and are delivering the excellent service I used to get. Thank you
