Malta has added the UK to its amber list, which means non-vaccinated travellers will not need to quarantine if they submit a negative COVID-19 PCR test certificate. 

The test should be carried out 72 hours before boarding.

The announcement follows news that as of 1 June 2021, Malta will welcome passengers from the UK who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to enter without the need for a test.  

British travellers who can show proof of full vaccination received at least 10 days before arriving in the country will no longer have to provide a negative PCR test certificate 72 hours prior to, or on arrival in Malta.

Passengers will need to show their vaccination card when boarding to be accepted to travel.

Malta Tourism Authority Director UK & Ireland Tolene Van Der Merwe said:  “We’re thrilled to be able to share the news that over 50% of the adult population in Malta have now been vaccinated as it means we are another step closer to welcoming vaccinated travellers or those that can present a negative PCR test from the United Kingdom from 1 June 2021.

“We are proud of our long-standing and special relationship with Great Britain and the people of Malta are looking forward to tourists returning.”
