The Maldives Monetary Authority (MMA) is leading a three-phase initiative to transform the payments landscape in the Maldives to enable simple, fast and secure payments. The primary objective of the project is to ensure that users are able to make and receive payments instantly irrespective of the island they live on or where they bank. With the rapid modernization of the Maldivian economy, we are becoming increasingly interconnected both within and across networks. While the greater degree of connectivity has the potential to allow payment solutions to also become more automated and integrated, appropriate infrastructure development is required to capitalize upon this transition and cater to the future developments in the economy

An all inclusive instant payments system will be fast,
easy to use, open and safe, promote innovation and
will deliver better services to Maldivians.


The Maldives Payment System Development (MPSD) is a multi-phase initiative by the MMA to address key needs of the Maldivian economy. Increasing the end-to-end speed of payments while ensuring the efficiency and safety of the payments system is given primary importance. With the future of payments in mind, the system will be open and flexible to accommodate and foster innovation and competition in the Maldivian payments space.
