Malta to welcome back vaccinated British travellers from June 1

Malta will welcome passengers from the UK from June 1, 2021, who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

British travellers who can show proof of full vaccination received at least ten 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 is second to the UK in terms of European countries vaccinating the greatest proportion of its population, with 40% of the adult population having received its first dose, making the destination a safe choice for future travel.

Tolene Van Der Merwe, director UK & Ireland of Malta Tourism Authority, commented: “Malta is a very popular destination for British holidaymakers and is a key contributor to Malta’s economy, so we are excited to welcome back fully vaccinated travellers from the United Kingdom from 1 June 2021. The people of Malta are looking forward to tourists returning who have loved our sunshine, culture, food and warm spirit year in year out.”

“Malta has implemented its Sunny and Safe COVID protocols, so visitors can be reassured that all restaurants, accommodation and service providers must comply with the highest levels of cleanliness and safety.”

British travellers will be able to visit the archipelago, comprised of Malta, Gozo and Comino – for leisure and business trips, where visitors can enjoy the sights of the islands. With many travellers looking forward to restrictions easing and the allure of future trips to Malta on the horizon, the Malta Tourism Authority will also be launching its new campaign, ‘Feel Free Again’. The campaign aims to inspire travellers to harness their re-established freedom to plan, book and travel to Malta when the time is right, to once again experience all that the islands have to offer and the feeling of freedom it brings.
