Persons who are in possession of a vaccination certificate which is recognised and approved by the Superintendent of Public Health may also travel to and from Malta from any country listed below:

Belarus, Belize, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bhutan, Fiji, Jamaica, Georgia, Faroe Islands, Kosovo, Kazakhstan, North Macedonia, Montenegro, Moldova, Vietnam, Egypt, Iran, Libya, Panama, Qatar, Cuba, Russia, Serbia, Taiwan, Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan  and Saudi Arabia.


A travel ban to and from countries other than the above amber listed countries still applies. Thus, commercial tourism travel from countries not on Malta’s amber list is not permitted.


In this regard and until the said Travel Ban remains in place Maltese nationals are advised against all travel to and from countries not on the above amber list.

 

Only Maltese Nationals with a valid Maltese ID Card, and those who have a valid Maltese residency permit are eligible to return to Malta from countries not on above amber list after contacting the Maltese health authorities on covid19.vetting@gov.mt​.


Malta is currently not accepting vaccine certificates which are not Maltese.  Non-Maltese vaccine certificates will start being accepted when EU's Digital Covid Passport and bilateral agreements are in force.  

 

As from 1st June 2021 a valid Maltese vaccination certificate with clearly visible QR codes is acceptable for boarding. A vaccine certificate can be applied for on https://certifikatvaccin.gov.mt from 14 days after having completed a vaccination schedule in Malta.
