Malta will allow unvaccinated British holidaymakers quarantine-free entry from 11 April.

The Government announced today that visitors from red list countries, including the UK, will only need to produce a negative PCR test or a recovery certificate to enter.

Until 11 April, all UK visitors over the age of 11 must be vaccinated or go into 14 days quarantine.

However, Minister for Health Chris Fearne said today that the country is proceeding with its COVID exit roadmap.

Despite a rise in daily cases, it said Malta has the lowest rate of patients in intensive care with COVID across the EU.

Also, the majority of its population has now been boosted, leading to a futher relaxation of its rules.

From 11 April, all tourists from red list countries will be allowed in with a negative PCR test taken up to 72 hours prior to arrival or a recognised COVID recovery certificate no longer than 180 days.

Also, from 10 April, a vaccine certificate is no longer needed to attend standing outdoor events, or seated indoor events. 

“Today’s announcement essentially means that persons who, for some reason or other, are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 will be able to visit Malta without the need for mandatory quarantine,” said Malta Tourism Authority CEO Johann Buttigieg.

“This is great news for the tourism industry and we look forward to welcoming everyone back to explore the Maltese Islands.”
