Robbery against foreigners is increasing in Maldives
I am posting the real situation existing in maldives to alert all foreigners who seeks job in maldives. If you are about to go to maldives as a Govt. or private employ, do not carry too much of money & any expensive items ( camera or any electronic equipment like laptop, mobile phones, gold ornaments, any computer accessaries like pen drives, external harddisk, webcam etc. even if it is utmost required for ur job that u seek in maldives. Street robbers and house breaking robbers are always watching you. As soon as they gets an opportunity they we will utilise it. Unfortunately the Roberrors are the local citizens of Maldives whose main target is foreigners working in maldives. If u got robbed here, and gone to complaint in police, they will pretend to serve you, but actually not, because most of these roberrors are some way related ( blood relation ) to one or the other police men in police station. Current year from Jan -April 2012, seven laptop, and other expensive items has been stolen from the room of foreigners ( 5 indian & 2 uk nationals ) by house breaking, in one of the developed islands of maldives ( kuluhudhuffushi island ) and so far no one has been cought. Only one expection to this is that, one uk national has got her stolen laptop back as the high commission of UK has influenced the Maldivian government as per her request. She got her laptop back ( which appeared to be impossible ) within an hour, after the influence of high commission of uk, but nobody has been arrested by police for the crime. This clearly speaks about the attitude of police here when foreigners faces any trouble from local people. It is not a big task for the police to find out the person who does such crimes here when there is sufficient proof and that also from a low populated region. (nearly 12000 in kuluhudhuffushi island ). The population of most of the other islands are less than this. The interesting fact is that the robbers cannot easily escape from the island, unless they hire a boat or ferry, which also can be identified. Most often the police will file the case when we complain, but they will come forward, only when the foreigners are about to leave for annual vacation or in case they are about to leave the country, to say that we enquired but we didn't find it out and to get the signature from us to close the case. With out closing the case they will not allow to travel back from Maldives. In general maldivians doesn't give any respect or preference to foreigners belonging to other cast other than Muslim in most cases. This type of incidents are reported in almost all islands in maldives and is increasing day by day, since no one has been cought or punished for such crime here as per my knowledge. About me - I worked in many Islands here for the last 8 years and had communication with foreigners living in other islands of maldives. My house here has be robbed 3 times with in the last 2 years, but no one has been cought yet, nor do i got the stolen thing back. I am just said goodbye to maldives forever. In short, Maldives is not a better place to work or to live, but a paradice ( only in resorts ) for tourists......

Schengen visa for Indonesian Citizen
Dear Sir,

Can an Indonesian citizen apply for a Schengen visa in your consulate in Male, Maldives? I am based and work in the Maldives at present. I want to go to Poland in August.

If yes, how long does it take to obtain such a visa?

Kind regards,

Anna Karas

Currently living in the Maldives
