  • Malta Latest news: Travelers must have negative COVID-19 test to enter country as government tightens restrictions (Reuters, 28.03.2021). Government closes non-essential shops, theaters, museums because of rise in COVID-19 cases (Reuters, 10.03.2021).Travel from high-risk countries remains banned; government tightens restaurant closing times to contain the spread of COVID-19 (Reuters, 27.01.2021).

    International Restrictions:
    *From within the EU:

    Malta adopts its own national classification of risk areas, hence travel restrictions for Malta are not based on the common “EU Traffic Lights” map.

    Travellers coming from the “Green List” can enter the country without restrictions. They will only be subject to a health screening at the airport and will be asked to fill in a self-declaration form requesting information on their travel destinations in the previous 30 days, confirming that they have not travelled anywhere outside the safe countries list.

    All the countries not included on the “Green” or “Amber” List are automatically included on the “Red” List. Travellers coming from these countries are allowed to enter Malta as long as they have stayed in a “corridor country” for a minimum of 14 days. People coming to Malta cannot transit through airports located outside the list of corridor countries.

     

    Is a coronavirus test required?

    All travellers from the “Amber List” or allowed to enter Malta are subject to the requirement for a pre-departure negative PCR test.
    The test must be taken within 72 hours prior to arrival.

    For increased security, random swab tests may be conducted on passengers upon arrival at the Malta International Airport.

     

    Is a quarantine required?

    Travellers arriving from countries belonging to the “Amber List” who fail to produce a Covid-19 test may be tested upon arrival in Malta and may be subject to quarantine.
