Malta open to vaccinated visitors from June
by Jessica Pook
Malta will welcome visitors from the UK who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 from June 1, 2021.
UK passengers will no longer have to provide a negative PCR test certificate 72 hours prior to or on arrival in Malta, providing they have been fully vaccinated at least 10 days before arriving in the country.
Passengers will need to show their vaccination card when boarding to be able to travel.
Those travelling to the Mediterrnean island can expect all restaurants, accommodation and service providers to comply with Malta’s ‘Sunny and Safe’ COVID protocols, ensuring the highest levels of cleanliness and safety are adhered to.
The Malta Tourism Authority will also be launching its new campaign, ‘Feel Free Again’, which encourages travellers to plan, book and travel to Malta when the time is right, and explore the islands of Malta, Gozo and Comino.
Tolene Van Der Merwe, Director UK & Ireland of Malta Tourism Authority, said: “Malta is a very popular destination for British holidaymakers, so we are excited to welcome back fully vaccinated travellers from the UK from June 1, 2021.
“The people of Malta are looking forward to tourists returning; those who have loved our sunshine, culture, food and warm spirit year in year out.”
Malta is second to the UK in terms of European countries vaccinating its population, with 40% of the adult population having received its first dose.
