Malta’s COVID-19 travel restrictions have just been subjected to some very welcome changes, as from this Friday, vaccinated Maltese residents returning from ‘dark-red’ countries will no longer have to undergo quarantine at a hotel.

To quarantine at home, these people’s family members must also be vaccinated and in possession of a valid vaccine certificate.

Having said that, Health Minister Chris Fearne said that hotel quarantine will still apply to travellers living in households of more than five people.

Minister Fearne also announced that the country will be updating its list of ‘dark red’ countries to potentially remove Russia and India and add countries at risk of the ‘Mu’ variant.

As it stands, Malta’s ‘dark red’ list is made up of a whopping 154 countries, including Mexico, South Africa, and Peru.

Hopefully, as the global COVID-19 situation continues to improve, Malta will be able to further relax its travel restrictions.
