Transport Ministry has added Bangladesh to the list of countries from which they would allow their citizens to be issued a permanent driver’s license in the Maldives without the completion of a test – subject to that the individual possesses a valid license issued by the relevant authorities from such a country.
Bangladesh was added to the earlier 25-country list publicized back in July – today.
The Ministry publicized the regulation which they would follow when issuing driver’s licenses in the Maldives for foreign license holders without the completion on August 10.
Under the regulation – driver’s license in the Maldives would be issued to foreign license holders – whether local or foreign – without the completion of a test subject to that the individual possesses a valid license issued by the relevant authorities from a country penned in the list.
With Bangladesh being added to the list – the list now comprises totally of 26 countries. They are:
When requesting the license – the applicant if a local must submit an ID Card copy, and a passport copy which indicates that the applicant was residing in the country the license had been issued in at the date of its issuance.
Foreigners are required to submit a work visa copy, a passport copy and a copy of the foreign driver’s license they hold – that must not be expired. The validity of this license will be checked online.
If the foreign license cannot be verified online – a verification document from an embassy would suffice.
