    Travel With Peace of Mind in Malta

    From touchdown to takeoff, you can rest assured knowing the Maltese Ministry for Tourism and Consumer Protection has put stringent measures in place to keep every visitor safe throughout their stay. Be it hotels, public transport, restaurants, or attractions, every establishment must comply with a set of protocols that were implemented for one sole purpose: to ensure you have a healthy and happy holiday.

    Below, you’ll find the three guiding principles of these protocols, along with important details about Malta’s hygiene measures.

    Everything You Need to Know About Malta’s Safety Measures

    Recognized by the European Commission and the World Health Organisation for its excellent hygiene protocols, Malta is known to be among the safest countries to visit post-COVID-19. Here are all the important details you need to know about the country’s safety measures at every touchpoint of your trip.

    • Upon Arrival

      A thermal screening and detailed self-declaration form will be required for all visitors upon arrival at Malta International Airport. These new protocols have been implemented in a way that ensures proper safeguards are in place, while keeping the process seamless for travellers.

    • Getting Around

      Thanks to practices such as frequent aeration and disinfection of buses and coaches, sanitization of taxis after every trip, and thorough rental vehicle cleanings, you can feel confident travelling around Malta by any means.

    • Accommodations

      The Malta Tourism Authority has inspected each establishment that is currently open for business, ensuring they are meeting the highest levels of cleanliness. Special stickers have also been awarded to all COVID-19 compliant hotels and resorts, so it’s easy to identify safe and hygienic accommodation options.

    • Dining & Drinking

      Much like hotels and resorts, restaurants and bars also abide by a set of protocols designed to ensure maximum cleanliness and hygiene. Tables and chairs are spaced out appropriately at dining establishments so guests can maintain a safe distance from one another. 

    • Beaches & Pools

      At Malta’s beaches, you'll see more frequent disinfection of public toilets and two metres of space left between lounge chairs and umbrellas. Special precautions at pools are similar: appropriate spacing between sunbeds, regular sanitization, and a reduced guest capacity to ensure ample space for swimming and sunbathing.

    • Sightseeing & Attractions

      Attractions such as museums, shops, and tourist hotspots are also adhering to similar safety principles, including physical distancing, enhanced cleaning protocols, frequent sanitization, and mandatory facemasks when required.
