Malta international airport

As of today, Monday 25th July, passengers without a vaccine certificate or a recovery certificate are no longer required to secure a COVID PCR or rapid negative test result to enter the country without restrictions.

Malta was known for having one of the strictest vaccine entry policies in Europe, requiring travellers without a valid vaccine certificate to quarantine at a designated hotel at their own cost.

With Europe’s aviation industry in chaos thanks to a shortage of staff, resulting in long security lines, lost baggage and cancelled or delayed flights, the removal of further bureaucracy is welcome.

The removal of requiring a vaccine certificate, recovery certificate, or negative COVID test marks the end of a contentious period for the health authorities, which came under heavy fire for introducing the strict requirements. Limits on entry to Malta based on vaccine status were introduced in July 2021, and, one year later, have finally been removed.
