Malta to Open Its Borders to EU Tourists

In Malta, the vaccination process is currently underway, Malta is even included in the list of advanced countries in terms of the number of citizens vaccinated against Covid-19. In this regard, the government of the country decided to announce the opening of Malta for tourists from the EU countries, starting from June 1, 2021.

To regulate the rules of entry, the usual “traffic light scheme” of safety designations will be applied, according to which all countries are divided into three categories: “red”, “yellow” and “green”.

Citizens of countries on the red list will need to present a certificate of vaccination received at least 10 days prior to arrival in Malta.

Tourists residing in the countries of the “yellow” list can be provided with a negative PCR test for COVID-19 received no more than 72 hours before arrival in Malta or a vaccination certificate received at least 10 days before the date of arrival in Malta.

Travelers from countries on the green list will be able to freely arrive and move around the country.

These rules will apply to tourists from the European Union and countries with which Malta has signed bilateral agreements in the field of healthcare. For all other countries, the rules set by the EU will apply.

As of early April 2021, Malta ranks second after the UK in terms of vaccinations, with a daily growth rate of 1%. About 40% of the adult population has already received the first dose, and the government is doing everything possible to make the process as active as possible.
