Want to Earn Points for Each Border Crossing? Head Over to Maldives!

It’s time to #VisitMaldivesNow. Head over to #Maldives and earn points for each border crossing. This year, the paradise destination has launched its own loyalty program, the Maldives Border Miles — a first for a country.

This program is a 3-tiered loyalty program for tourists. Tourists who enroll in this program will earn points based on the number of visits and duration of stay. Additional points will be awarded for visits to celebrate special occasions.

The tiers:

– Aida (bronze tier)
– Anantara (silver tier)
– Abaarana (gold tier).

Each tier will be defined by a set variety of rewards, services or benefits, which increase in value as members progress.

How you will earn points: 

50 points for each border crossing
30 points for visits to celebrate honeymoons
30 points for visits to celebrate wedding anniversaries
30 points for visits to celebrate birthdays
10 points for visits during local occasions
20 points for seasonal visits
5 points for each night spent in Maldives
5 points for pre-defined services obtained from partners

How you can upgrade the tier: 

Earn 500 points to reach Aida
Earn 2000 points to reach Antara
Earn 4000 points to reach Abaarana

“As per our estimate, for an average traveler, it will take about 3-4 trips to reach Aida, 15-17 trips to Antara and 30-32 trips to Abaarana,” Maldives Immigration reported. “As this program is aimed for repeated travelers, we believe that tourists will start earning the first tier by the end of next year probably.”

If you are traveling to Maldives for the purpose of tourism you can enroll as a member of Maldives Border Miles. However, points will be rewarded if you stay in a registered tourist facility and if you stay at least 3 nights in Maldives. For the most recent updates of the program, visit www.bordermiles.mv

The Maldives Border Miles is a tourism promotion program initiated by Maldives Immigration, and developed with joint stakeholders, who also joined the ceremony; Ministry of Tourism, Maldives Marketing and Public Relations Corporation (MMPRC) and Maldives Airports Company Limited (MACL).
