MVR – Maldivian Rufiyaa


MVR is considered to be a restricted currency, which implies an inherent limitation to the tradability of this currency. Fund transfers in this currency are not allowed outside of Maldives.

Please note that due to the increase in number of COVID-19 cases in the Maldives, local banks are only operating on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays which means that payments will likely face delays.

Besides this limitation, this currency is considered to be standardized.

Currency Guidelines

Only the standard information is mandatory.

A clear reason / purpose of payment is recommended and consists of a full written description (in English) of the nature of payment to be provided in the remittance information. For example: providing an invoice number without guiding text is considered as insufficient and can result in errors or delays.

Example: Payment of travel expenses – invoice n° 123456789
