Maldives President Dr. Mohamed Muizzu, acting on a recommendation from the Cabinet, has resolved to impose a ban on Israeli passports.

The announcement was made by the Minister of Homeland Security and Technology, Ali Ihsaan, during a news conference held at the President’s Office yesterday afternoon.

The decision entails amending necessary laws to prevent Israeli passport holders from entering the Maldives. To ensure the smooth implementation of this policy, a Cabinet subcommittee will be established to oversee the legislative amendments and the enforcement of the ban.

Minister Ihsaan emphasized the government’s stance, stating, “This decision reflects our unwavering support for the Palestinian cause and our commitment to aligning our policies with the sentiments of the Maldivian people.”

To bolster support for Palestine, President Muizzu also unveiled plans for a nationwide fundraising campaign. This initiative, in collaboration with the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), aims to provide much-needed assistance to Palestinian refugees. The President called upon all Maldivians to contribute generously to the campaign, underscoring the country’s longstanding solidarity with the Palestinian people.

Moreover, the President announced a nationwide rally under the slogan “Falastheenaa Eku Dhivehin,” which translates to “Maldivians in Solidarity with Palestine.” This rally is intended to demonstrate the collective support of the Maldivian nation for Palestine and to raise awareness about the plight of the Palestinian people.
