What do I need to do to enter Malta?

From 30 June, adults travelling from the UK to Malta will need to be fully vaccinated, and from which date the NHS Covid Pass will be accepted as proof of vaccination. 

Do children need Covid tests or vaccines to enter Malta?

Children aged 12-18 will need to be fully vaccinated to enter Malta. Children aged 5-11 can travel if they are accompanied by an adult, and can provide a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours before flying to the country. Children under 5 do not need to take a test or be vaccinated.

Will restaurants and bars be open while I’m in Malta?

Yes, from 28 June restaurants, bars, clubs and snack bars can remain open until 2am (or earlier, depending on their license). There is a limit of six people per table.

What else do I need to know?

From 28 June, sea transport will be allowed to operate at 65% capacity. Masks are mandatory in all public spaces (under 3s are exempt). From 1 July, two people may remove their masks in public if they have been fully vaccinated, but only Maltese vaccination certificates are legitimate proof for this purpose. 


What will I need to do when I get back?

From 30 June, Malta will be on the UK's 'green list'. This means that you will need to take a test on or before day two after you arrive – you do not need to to quarantine if the test is negative. You will also need to fill in a passenger locator form.
