New travel rules for Malta
An EU-approved vaccination is necessary for quarantine-free entry under new rules in Malta
Malta welcomes vaccinated travellers
The Maltese authorities have listed new travel rules regarding entry into the country. If you are a resident from the EU, Switzerland or UK and are fully vaccinated, you may now travel to Malta without having to quarantine on arrival. Holders of the EU Digital COVID Certificate (EUDCC) will only be allowed entry if they have been fully vaccinated in an EU country, Switzerland or UK. In addition, the vaccines used must be approved by the European Medicines Authority, such as Moderna, Pfizer, AstraZeneca or Janssen (Johnson & Johnson).
If you have been vaccinated outside of the EU, Switzerland or UK, a quarantine period must still be undertaken.
Children aged 12 and over must hold a full vaccination certificate or provide a negative PCR test before entry into Malta. Children aged 11 and under do not have to provide a vaccination certificate, however, those aged between five and 12 must show a negative PCR test and be accompanied by a fully vaccinated adult. Children under five remain exempt.
Dive into Gozo’s deep blue seas to discover an underwater paradise
Famous for its colourful marine life, cut-glass visibility and wide variety of submerged attractions, including sea caves, tunnels and shipwrecks, the shimmering waters of the Maltese archipelago are simply a diver’s paradise and considered one of the top diving spots in the Mediterranean. The region is best known for its incredible light penetration and the turquoise seas surrounding Malta, Gozo and the lesser known island of Comino, hide a multitude of reefs with dive spots accessible from both the shore and by boat, and suitable for divers of all abilities.
