Male is the capital of the Republic of Maldives and is located close to North Male Atoll (Kaafu Atoll). The city is made up of central island, two other islands, and an airport island; all governed by the city council in Male.
If you want to relocate to Male, you need to be sure you are familiar with the rules and regulations that surround importing a vehicle. You will most likely need to hire an auto transporter that can handle international shipping. A1 Auto Transport Service can help you ship your vehicle from the United States to the shipping port in Maldives and will help you obtain the right paperwork that you need in order to legally import your vehicle.

There are three ways that you can transport your vehicle from the United States to Maldives.
- Roll On/ Roll Off Shipping: This type of shipping requires that your vehicle be driven onto the ship and off the ship once it reaches the port. This is the most affordable way to transport your vehicle over and it’s also the quickest way. However, your vehicle is exposed outside.
- Container Shipping: A container big enough to hold your vehicle and anything else you want to ship to Maldives is loaded up and then transferred over to the ship before launching. This type of shipping takes longer and cost more money but you can keep the expenses down by sharing the container with someone else.
- Air Shipping: This is the quickest way to move a vehicle from one country to another. It is also the most expensive shipping method when shipping from the United States to Maldives.
