All arrivals from the UK aged 12 or over must show proof of full vaccination to enter Malta – please note, you’ll need to be fully vaccinated at least 14 days before your arrival. If you’re not fully vaccinated and aged 12 or over, you’ll have to quarantine on arrival in Mata for 14 days at your own cost.
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. An NHS COVID Pass shows your COVID-19 vaccination details and will be accepted – find out how you can get this.
IMPORTANT: Regardless of your age, if you’ve only received a single (first) dose of the Astra Zeneca, Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, you’re NOT considered fully vaccinated.
Details may vary for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland residents. Please check with your national health service. Please note, your business card-sized paper COVID-19 vaccination record card isn’t an acceptable form of vaccine status proof and can’t be used to enter.
There are exemptions for pregnant women and children:
- Children aged 5-11 will have to show evidence of a negative COVID-19 PCR test result instead of proof of full vaccination. This should be taken within 72 hours before your arrival in Malta.
- Children aged 4 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
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.
