If you’re flying to Malta from tomorrow, you need to make sure you have one of two things, according to last weekend’s legal notice.
You either need to have a negative PCR test taken at last 72 hours before your flight or you need a Maltese vaccination certificate, which is not yet out but expected to start being available from tomorrow.
Without one of these two things, passengers should be denied boarding on all flights coming to Malta.
Travel also requires a completed Passenger Locator Form including a Public Health Travel Declaration Form which can be found here.
These new entry requirements, make up Legal Notices 229 and 230 of 2021, and enter into force from tomorrow.
“Persons found in breach of this requirement on arrival into Malta will be required to have a mandatory PCR test taken upon arrival and will be required to enter mandatory quarantine until the PCR test results become known. Mandatory quarantine can be extended for whatever period deemed necessary in the event the person’s test results are positive,” a spokesman for Air Malta said.
The cost of both the test and the mandatory quarantine accommodation will be borne by the passenger found in breach.
Passengers under 5 years of age are exempt from these requirements.
Completed forms are to be presented to health officials stationed at the Terminal Temperature Screening Points following arrival in Malta.
