Passengers over the age of 12 years can only travel to Malta if they have a vaccination certificate, confirming that the full dosage of a vaccine approved by the European Medicines Agency was received, and issued at least 14 days from the date of the administration of the final dose of the vaccine.
A list of vaccine certificates that are recognised by the Superintendent of Public Health may be found here.
The following certificates are NOT VALID for travel to Malta:
- Certificate of recovery from Covid-19;
- Vaccine appointment card;
- Vaccine certificates for only 1 dose of a vaccine requiring 2 doses, also for people who recovered from Covid-19;
- Vaccine certificates with less than 14 days from the final dose.
Additional requirements apply to travellers entering Malta from a country listed on Malta’s Dark Red List.
Travellers who cannot get vaccinated due to medical reasons, as well as children aged between 5 and 11 years (both ages included), may travel to Malta by presenting a negative PCR test, which must be taken within 72 hours prior to their arrival in Malta. Children falling within this category must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians, who in turn must present a recognised vaccine certificate. Children under 5 years of age do not need a PCR test to travel with their fully vaccinated parents or legal guardians.
