Traveling to and from Malta might be about to get way easier…

Minutes ago, Health Minister Chris Fearne took to social media to announce that after his bi-weekly meeting with Superintendent for Public Health Charmaine Gauci, he “will be announcing changes to Malta travel restrictions – including quarantine protocols – to the press tomorrow.”

This should serve as a breath of fresh air for anyone planning to travel in the coming weeks.

Authorities were subjected to some criticism in the past few days as travellers arriving in Malta from ‘dark red’ countries are forced to spend their two-week quarantine at a hotel – against a €1,400 fee.

At the moment, Malta’s dark red list is made up of a whopping 154 countries, including Mexico, South Africa, Peru, and Russia.

Before traveling to Malta from such countries, travellers must first receive authorisation from the authorities. This is only granted in exceptional circumstances.

If authorisation is granted, travellers must present a negative PCR test and then commit to 14-day quarantine upon arrival.
