Malta will end testing for children under 12 in a move that will boost the family market ahead of the school holidays.

Currently, all arrivals from the age of six must have proof of a negative test for entry unless they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

However, Visit Malta has announced that only children from the age of 12 and non-vaccinated adults will have to show a negative test from 6 June.

The test can be a PCR taken no more than 72 hours before arrival or an antigen test taken no more than 24 hours earlier.

Malta has also dropped its Passenger Locator Form, although face masks are still required on flights to Malta.
