Air passengers arriving in Malta are obliged to declare they spent two weeks in one of the ‘safe’ countries for travel, but some have managed to defy the legal notice.

Sources told Lovin Malta that they were able to border hop in order to avoid the two-week quarantine upon arrival without any checks.

Superintendent of Public Health Charmaine Gauci had previously affirmed that once the travel ban is lifted on 1st June, passengers would have to declare they spent at least a 14 days in one of the 25 approved destinations. This came after the fear of border hopping from countries not on the list in order for travellers to avoid the two-week quarantine upon arrival.

A spokesperson from the Ministry of Health insisted that the declaration form is provided for all passengers arriving in Malta. 

All other commercial flights will commence again next week, on 15th July.

Malta’s airport was closed to non-essential flights mid-March due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
