Resa till Malta

Malta International Airport öppnade 1 juli 2020 och kommersiella flygningar återupptogs från det datumet. Vissa restriktioner kan förekomma, beroende på vilket land resenären anländer från. De olika restriktionerna baseras utifrån en Grön, Gul och Röd lista, enligt nedan:


Grön lista

Resenärer som anländer till Malta från säkra länder på den ”Gröna listan” kommer INTE att testas vid ankomst. Det kommer endast göras en screening på flygplatsen och ankommande passagerare kommer bli ombedda att fylla i ett formulär och informera om vilka resor man gjort de senaste 30 dagarna. Mer specifikt blir passagerarna ombedda att bekräfta att de inte har rest någonstans utanför de säkra länderna (på den Gröna Listan).

För närvarande finns följande länder på den ”Gröna listan”:

  • N/A

Gul Lista

Passagerare som anländer från länder på den “Gula listan” måste kunna uppvisa ett negativt COVID-19 PCR test innan de går ombord på flyget till Malta. Testet får inte vara mer än 72 timmar gammalt. Som ytterligare säkerhetsåtgärd kan slumpmässiga tester komma att utföras vid ankomst till Malta International Airport.

För närvarande är följande länder på ”Gula listan”:

  • Andorra
  • Australia
  • Austria
  • Belgium
  • Bulgaria
  • Canada
  • China (Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan included)
  • Croatia
  • Cyprus

Röda Listan

Alla länder som inte listas på den gröna eller gula listan, hamnar automatiskt på den röda listan. För passagerare som anländer från dessa länder är kravet att man som minimum spenderat de senaste 14 dagarna i ett av säkra länderna (på den Gröna listan), innan ankomst till Malta. Rekommendationen är också att dessa passagerare tar ett PCR test 72 timmar innan ankomst.

VÄNLIGEN OBSERVERA: Listorna uppdateras kontinuerligt.

Travel Restrictions

The Health Ministry announced that, from Monday 29th March 2021, a revision will be made in the list of countries in the amber zone so that all countries currently in the green zone are added to this list.

Every traveller arriving in Malta will be requested to present their negative PCR COVID-19 test, carried out not more than 72 hours before their arrival in Malta. Persons who fail to produce this test may be submitted to testing in Malta and also subjected to a quarantine.

Travel from countries on the red list remains banned, except for repatriation travel.

 

Public Gatherings Limited to Two Persons 

From Wednesday 31st March, the maximum number of persons who may gather in public places will be reduced from four to two. The measure does not apply to persons who live in the same household. 

This means that in public places, groups of over two persons are banned, including in queues and on bus stops, unless a social distance of two metres between them is observed.

Persons who breach this measure will be subjected to a €300 fine for each person.

The measures, which will apply until Sunday 11th April 2021, are being enforced on the suggestion of the Public Health Superintendent in order to counter the spread of Covid-19 over the Easter Holidays.

Update 21/12/2020 - Flights to and from the UK suspended as from Tuesday 22nd December

As from Tuesday 22nd December 2020, all flights to and from the United Kingdom are being suspended. This measure is being introduced in the wake of a new variant of the COVID-19 virus detected amongst patients in the UK.

Notwithstanding this suspension, Maltese citizens and persons who reside in Malta and who are currently in the United Kingdom will be allowed to return to Malta. However these will be subject to a PCR test upon arrival and will have to undergo a 14-day mandatory quarantine.

The local health authorities stated that this restriction is a temporary one as they are following closely developments in the United Kingdom whilst taking part in discussions with the European Union regarding the situation with the aim of establishing a common position and direction going forward
