Covid Vaccine

The health and tourism authorities announced that as of Monday, 4th October 2021, Malta will officially recognise the COVID-19 vaccine certificates issued by the Republic of Kosovo, Palestine, Bermuda and the Kingdom of Bahrain.

Maltese authorities are also recognising the vaccine certificate issued by Israel following its inclusion in the EU’s Digital Vaccine Certificate Program.

The vaccine certificates will be recognised by vaccines approved by the European Medicines Authority, which shall be a full course and 14 days after the last dose. COVID vaccines produced by Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson are currently the only ones to be recognised by the EMA, and in turn, Malta.

This means that travellers coming into Malta from countries where vaccine certificates are accepted but have a non-recognised vaccine on their certificate, such as Russia’s Sputnik, would have to quarantine for two weeks at a designated hotel at their own expense of €1,400.

Currently, Malta is recognising the digital vaccine certificates of the European Union, Switzerland, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, Serbia, Gibraltar, Jersey, Guernsey, Qatar, Albania, Australia, Egypt, Lebanon, Canada, Singapore, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, Rwanda, as well as the United States of America record card.
