Information On Coronavirus (COVID-19) for Malta Paradise Customers
Travelling to Malta
Travellers are not required to complete a Passenger Locator Form for entry to Malta.
All passengers are required to present on arrival in Malta either a valid vaccination certificate, a negative PCR test taken within the last 72 hours, or a negative rapid antigen test taken within the last 24 hours.
You should not use the NHS testing service to get a test in order to facilitate your travel to another country. You should arrange to take a private test..
If you’re fully vaccinated
All passengers will be permitted to enter Malta with either a vaccination certificate or a negative PCR taken no longer than 72 hours before arrival, or a rapid antigen test taken no longer than 24 hours before arrival.
The vaccination certificate must show that you received a full course of vaccination at least 14 days, prior to your arrival. If you live in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland or Wales, Malta will accept the UK’s COVID vaccine certification (both the digital and letter versions) as proof of your vaccination status. Digital certificates must include a verifiable 2D barcode (QR code). Your NHS appointment card from vaccination centres is not designed to be used as proof of vaccination and should not be used to demonstrate your vaccine status.
If you received your vaccinations in the EU, then as of 1 July 2021 the EU digital COVID Certificates will be accepted.
If you received your vaccinations in a country that administers only one dose after recovery from COVID-19, and the vaccination certificate is accepted by the Maltese authorities, you may enter Malta if your certificate shows recovery from COVID at least six months before you arrive and one dose of an EMA-approved vaccine.
Proof of vaccination status
You can use the UK COVID Pass to demonstrate your vaccination record when entering Malta.
If you're not fully vaccinated
You may enter Malta without being fully vaccinated. Travellers will need to provide a negative PCR taken no longer than 72 hours before arrival or a rapid antigen test taken no longer than 24 hours before arrival.
If you've had COVID-19 in the past year
If you’re travelling to Malta, you cannot use the UK proof of COVID-19 recovery record certifying that you have recovered from COVID-19 in the last 6 months.
Children and young people
Children aged 6 to 11 can travel if they are accompanying their vaccinated parents/legal guardian and must show evidence of a negative Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test, dated within 72 hours before arrival. Children under 6 do not need a test. Children aged 5-11 may use their vaccination certificate, if applicable, to travel instead of a PCR test. Children aged 12 to 18 will be permitted to enter Malta if they have either a valid vaccination certificate, a negative PCR test taken within the last 72 hours or a negative rapid antigen test taken within the last 24 hours.
