We're delighted that Malta & Gozo are welcoming UK visitors for their well-earned holidays.
Please see below the latest entry requirements for customers travelling to Malta & Gozo. You should also make sure you check the latest news before you travel, as advice can change at the last minute. You will find the latest news here: FCDO Travel Advice for Malta
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 live in England, Malta will accept the NHS COVID Pass (both the Digital App and letter versions) as proof of your vaccination status. If you live in Scotland or Wales, Malta will accept your respective NHS letter. See ‘Demonstrating your COVID-19 vaccination status’
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
Everyone must complete a Public Health Travel Declaration Form and Passenger Locator Form. You must show both forms to airline officials on departure and health officials stationed at the Terminal Temperature Screening Points when you arrive in Malta.

Returning back to the UK
The Malta & Gozo are on the Green list for entry back into the UK. You must therefore also ensure you arrange the appropriate tests and forms for when you return home. You can find out more about what you need to do in our articles here:
If the traffic light category changes whilst you are away, then you will need to comply with the requirements for the category in place for when you return home. For example, if the category changes from green to amber, you will need to comply with the amber regulations.
