Malta lifts obligation to present Passenger Locator Form 


The Maltese authorities have announced that the country will apply more facilitated COVID-19 rules today.

According to the official travel portal of Malta, Visit Malta, from today, May 2, travellers who plan on visiting Malta are no longer required to complete or present the Passenger Locator Form.


In addition, the same has revealed that travellers will no longer be subject to the mask requirement. The authorities have explained that while in Malta, travellers will not be required to wear a face mask when accessing most public places and events.

It has been noted that wearing a face mask now remains mandatory only when entering healthcare facilities and for those travelling by plane.

“Masks will no longer be mandatory except on flights, hospitals, and care homes,” the Maltese authorities explain.

Despite facilitating some of the rules, Malta still requires all travellers to present valid COVID-19 proof upon their arrival. Currently, all countries are placed on Malta’s red list. This means that everyone must hold a valid vaccination, recovery, or test certificate to be permitted restriction-free entry to the country.

Apart from the above-mentioned, Malta has also decided to ease the quarantine requirement. Only those who tested positive for the COVID-19 disease will have to stay self-isolated.

“Only the person who has tested positive will need to isolate for seven days. Persons living in the same household as a person who has tested positive will no longer need to quarantine unless he/she/they develop symptoms,” the statement of Visit Malta reads.


After considering the infection and vaccination rates, the Maltese authorities decided to make such changes.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), Malta has registered only 1,766 new Coronavirus infection cases in the last seven days.
