Malta changes the rules for entering the country for the unvaccinated: quarantine!
Following the signal from the European Commission, Malta decided to amend the provision prohibiting access to the country for the unvaccinated. Thus, starting today, those who do not have a complete vaccination schedule or are not vaccinated at all can enter Malta, but will be quarantined.
The Maltese government has announced that the unimmunized will must comply with the quarantine of whose duration is not mentioned, although the mandatory period of self-isolation for those arriving from countries classified as "red" is already set at 14 days.
The new regulation also excludes children under the age of 12 and those who cannot receive the vaccine for medical reasons. Instead, you must present a negative PCR test no later than 72 hours before arrival.
Following a sharp increase in the number of COVID-19 cases, the Maltese government said last Friday that from 14 July, all travelers arriving in Malta must present a COVID-19 vaccination certificate with an authorized vaccine. Following this announcement, the European Commission asked Malta to explain the decision in the context in which the EU has already established the rules for the digital certificate.
