Malta declares to relax its COVID-19 restrictions 


The authorities of Malta have announced that the country has decided to further relax its COVID-19 restrictions.

The Maltese official travel portal, Visit Malta, has revealed that starting from today, May 9, Malta will no longer classify other countries as red or dark red.


This means that all incoming travellers, regardless of their country of origin, will no longer need a pre-travel authorisation by the Superintendent of Public Health.

“With effect from Monday, May 9, 2022, COVID-19 restrictions related to travel will be relaxed again, as countries will no longer be classified as Red or Dark Red. This also means that the need for pre-travel authorisation by the Superintendent of Public Health from countries that are on the dark red list will no longer be needed,” the statement of Visit Malta reads.

The Maltese authorities have said that from May 9, travel to the country will depend on the immunity status of a person, meaning that all travellers are required to present a vaccination, recovery, or test certificate to be permitted entry to Malta without having to follow any additional rules.

The requirement to present one of the certificates mentioned above applies to all travellers over six.

Malta applies the same validity period on COVID passes as the other EU countries. A vaccination certificate is only recognised if it proves that the holder has completed primary vaccination in the last 270 days or if the holder has received a booster shot.

On the other hand, the recovery passes are only accepted if they indicate that the holder has recovered from the COVID-19 in the last 180 days.


As for the COVID test, the Maltese authorities explain that the country accepts both rapid antigen and PCR tests. The rapid antigen test must be taken within 24 hours before arrival in Malta, whereas the PCR test must be taken within 72 hours before arrival in Malta.
