A British-Maltese travel bubble?

By | Category: Featured

From the beginning of June, Malta will open up to holidaymakers from the UK that have been vaccinated.

This has some significance because, after the UK, Malta has the highest vaccination rate of any EU country. It could be that Malta will be one of the countries that the UK government would be happiest for us to visit being reasonably sure that holidaymakers returning would probably bring back increased infections to the British Isles.

However before you rush and book be aware that the Maltese want to protect themselves to so they are only allowing entry to those that can show proof of both jabs of a vaccination received at least ten days before arriving in the country. Passengers will need to show their vaccination card when boarding to be accepted to travel.

Those that haven’t been vaccinated fully will have to provide a negative PCR test certificate 72 hours prior to, or on arrival in Malta. Passengers will need to show their vaccination card when boarding to be accepted to travel.

The rules apply to all three islands of Malta, Gozo and Comino.

Malta implemented a “Sunny and Safe” COVID protocols meaning that all restaurants, accommodation and service providers must comply with the highest levels of cleanliness and safety.

On the back of this decision, the Malta Tourism Authority will also be launching a new campaign, ‘Feel Free Again’ to encourage us to book holidays and short breaks on the islands which are just a smidgeon over three hours from London.
