Parcel delivery destinations in Maldives
Even though the Republic of the Maldives consists of 1,192 islands, only 192 of them are home to its not insignificant roughly one third of a Million residents. The large majority of this population resides on Male, which is the capital of the island chain nation located in the Southern portion of the Maldives. This is why Male will be your main port of entry for shipping parcels there. From this island, your parcels will be processed through their Customs department and then released to the other island that get deliveries. Some islands may not actually get deliveries to them because they don't have the population to sustain regular deliveries. In this case, your recipient that you are shipping a parcel to may be required to go to a more densely populated area/ island to collect their packages. Your shipping company will know before you ship if this will apply to your shipping address so you and the recipient can be prepared.
