Mandatory proof of vaccination for Malta

Documents icon
Description

Fully vaccinated travelers must have a valid vaccination certificate showing they have received all vaccine doses required at least 14 and up to 270 days before traveling to Malta unless having received a booster dose. The vaccine expiry timeframe does not apply to travelers under the age of 18.

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.

Maltese travelers aged 18 years 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.

Maltese travelers under the age of 18 must have received all doses required at least 14 days before travel.

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.

Please see the source for more information on approved vaccination certificates.

More Details

This requirement does not apply to:

  • Travelers under 12 years of age;
  • Travelers with valid proof of recovery from COVID-19. Accepted certificates must state a maximum of 180 days have passed since the first positive COVID-19 test, no more than 180 days before arrival. Accepted recovery certificates include the EU Digital Covid Certificate and certificates recognized as equivalent to the EU Digital COVID Certificate. Travelers with proof of recovery with a positive PCR test certificate must be from no less than 14 days and a maximum of 180 days before arrival and must also have proof of a negative RT-PCR test taken a maximum of 72 hours before arrival.
  • Travelers holding a valid residency card and returning to Malta between January 17th, 2022, and February 1st, 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 January 17th, 2022. Following this date, those who do not possess a valid vaccine certificate must quarantine for 14 days on arrival in Malta.
