Consulate of Maldives in Thiruvananthapuram was established on 12 July 2005. The Consulate works under direction of Maldives High Commission in Delhi and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Maldives. The main reason to establish consulate in Thiruvanthapuram was the high number of migrant Maldivian population in Thiruvanthapuram and Kerala State. Main objective to establish Consulate is to assist Maldivians, Maldivian students and those Maldivians who visit Thiruvanathapuram or Kerala State. Our highest priority is to protect the lives and interests of Maldivian citizens in Thiruvananthapuram. We serve our fellow citizens during their most important moments - births, deaths, disasters, arrests, and medical emergencies.
The mission of the Maldives Consulate is to strengthen the Maldives traditional alliance with India, which dates back over 50 years. Key elements of our mission are to:
