Malta will axe its quarantine rules for unvaccinated Brits later this month in a further boost for holidaymakers to the popular destination. The Standard has more.
Currently the U.K. is on Malta’s red list, meaning only fully vaccinated Britons can visit for holidays without having to quarantine.
Unjabbed Britons have had to isolate at a designated hotel for 14 days on arrival, but that rule will be dropped on April 11th, meaning anyone arriving from a red list country to Malta can visit quarantine free.
However, those who are not fully jabbed against Covid will still need to show either proof of a negative PCR test or proof of Covid recovery within 180 days.
Vaccine certificates will no longer be required to attend standing outdoor events or seated indoor gatherings in a further easing of the rules.
The Visit Malta website said: “As from Monday, April 11th, incoming tourists travelling to Malta from a country on the red list will be allowed in with a negative PCR test taken up to 72 hours prior to arrival, or a recognised Covid recovery certificate which cannot be older than 180 days.
“Malta’s Deputy Prime Minister announced that, as planned, as from April 10th, a vaccine certificate is no longer needed for persons to attend standing outdoor events or seated indoor events.”
Malta’s minister for tourism Clayton Bartolo said in a statement: “The decision to ease further COVID-19 restrictions related to travel continues to be a turning point in the government’s efforts to drive the Maltese Islands back to normality.”
