If you’re aged 6 and over you must show one of the following to enter Malta:
Proof of full vaccination: To be “fully vaccinated” you must’ve had a complete course, usually two doses, of an approved vaccine at least 14 days before you’re due to arrive in Malta.
Proof of recovery from COVID-19: You can show evidence of recovery from COVID-19 by presenting a positive COVID-19 PCR or rapid antigen test result, dated between 11 and 180 days old.
How to get proof of your vaccination status:
An NHS COVID Pass shows your COVID-19 vaccination details (including if you’ve had a booster) and will be accepted for travel. If you live in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland, the process is different. Find out more about how to get proof of your vaccination status.
Proof of a negative COVID-19 test:
This can be either a:
- Negative COVID-19 PCR, LAMP or TMA test taken, at most, 72 hours before your scheduled departure time.
- Negative COVID-19 rapid antigen (RAT) test taken, at most, 24 hours before your scheduled departure time.
Please note, the UK Government has advised that you can’t use the free NHS tests for international travel as the result certificates don’t contain all the required information.
There are exemptions for pregnant women and children:
Children aged 5 and under are exempt. If you’re travelling on or before 6 June 2022, children aged 12 and under are exempt.
Pregnant women will have to show all of the following instead of proof of full vaccination:
- Evidence of a negative COVID-19 PCR test result taken within 72 hours before arrival in Malta.
- Doctor’s letter
- Proof of pregnancy
