Malta International Airport welcomes the government’s announcement that persons travelling from a red country will be allowed entry into Malta with a negative PCR test or a recovery certificate as of next week, as the first step towards the complete lifting of the country’s COVID-19 restrictions on travel.

In principle, all persons wishing to travel to our islands from one of more than 100 countries on Malta’s red list, can now do so regardless of their vaccination status. However, it is worth highlighting that PCR tests are an inconvenience (as well as an added cost, which can run into hundreds of euro for a travelling family) which can prompt potential visitors to choose another destination for their summer holiday. This particularly given that a number of European countries, including Switzerland, the Netherlands, Ireland and the United Kingdom, to name but a few, have recently completely removed all restrictions on travel.
