Malta welcomes back vaccinated British travellers

As things begin to open up once again, the Mediterranean archipelago is one of the newest and most beautiful places to explore

British travellers who can show proof of full vaccination (both doses of a coronavirus vaccine) received at least ten days before arriving in Malta will no longer have to provide a negative PCR test certificate 72 hours prior to, or on arrival in the country. Passengers will need to show their vaccination card when boarding to be accepted to travel.

Malta is second to the UK in terms of European countries vaccinating the greatest proportion of its population, with 40% of the adult population having received its first dose, making the destination a safe choice for travel.

Tolene Van Der Merwe, Director UK & Ireland of Malta Tourism Authority commented: “Malta is a very popular destination for British holidaymakers and is a key contributor to Malta’s economy, so we are excited to welcome back fully vaccinated travellers from the United Kingdom from 1 June 2021. The people of Malta are looking forward to tourists returning who have loved our sunshine, culture, food and warm spirit year in year out.

“Malta has implemented its ‘Sunny and Safe COVID’ protocols, so visitors can be reassured that all restaurants, accommodation and service providers must comply with the highest levels of cleanliness and safety.”

Clayton Bartolo, Malta’s Minister for Tourism and Consumer Protection said: “The health and safety of Maltese citizens and tourists will always be our top priority, and with the continued roll-out of the vaccine here in Malta, this focused reopening plan is designed to slowly and safely reopen tourism to fully vaccinated Britons.”
