Governments are changing their policies rapidly in response to the Omicron variant. We recommend checking in regularly and verifying requirements with the linked sources before making travel plans.
Travel is allowed with restrictions
Travelers who have been in selected countries for the past 14 days before travel are allowed to enter Malta. Please check the documentation, quarantine, and/or testing requirements before traveling.
Travelers must not transit through countries in the "Dark Red" list (banned countries) on their way to Malta. For more information, please check the source.
Before You Leave
No proof of negative pre-departure COVID-19 test results required for vaccinated travelers
Fully vaccinated travelers arriving from selected countries are not required to have a negative COVID-19 test result. Travelers must have a valid vaccination certificate that is accepted by the Maltese Ministry of Health.
Mandatory passenger locator form
All travelers must complete a Travel Declaration and Passenger Locator Form (PLF) online before traveling to Malta.
Mandatory proof of vaccination
Fully vaccinated travelers must have a valid vaccination certificate showing they have received all vaccine doses required before traveling to Malta. Travelers 18 years of age and older must have received the last dose at least 14 days and no more than 3 months before travel. Alternatively, they can have all doses required and a booster with the last dose of booster administered not more than 9 months before travel.
Travelers under 18 years of age must have received all doses required at least 14 days before travel.
Travelers must have received EMA-approved vaccines recognized by Maltese Public Health. These are Comirnaty (Pfizer), Jannsen (Johnson & Johnson), Spikevax (Moderna), Vaxzevria (AstraZeneca), and Nuvaxovid (NVX - CoV2373). A certificate with 2 different EMA-approved vaccines is accepted as valid.
Vaccine certificates with all doses from a WHO-approved vaccine are also valid as long as the traveler has also received a booster dose of an EMA-approved vaccine.
Travelers with access to the EU Digital Certificate may use it to present proof. US CDC vaccination cards must be verified through the VeriFLY app. For a complete list of recognized vaccine certificates, please see the source.
This requirement does not apply to:
- Travelers under 12 years of age;
- Travelers with valid proof of recovery from COVID-19 and who also received a dose of an EMA-approved vaccine at least 14 days before travel;
- Travelers holding a valid residency card and returning to Malta between the 17th January 2022 and 1st February 2022 would be granted a temporary exemption, with respect to the validity of the vaccine certificate. This thus allows them to enter Malta with the vaccine certification requirements in place prior to the 17th January 2022. Following this date, those who do not possess a valid vaccine certificate must quarantine for 14 days on arrival in Malta.
For more details and for a full list of exemptions, please see the source.
No quarantine required for vaccinated travelers
Fully vaccinated travelers who have been in selected countries in the past 14 days before travel are not required to quarantine on arrival.
