Malta on UK’s travel green list: good or bad?

Jun 25 2021 Share

To the delight of many, Malta was finally added to the UK’s quarantine-free green list yesterday after the country’s update of regulations on foreign travel. This news was welcomed by the tourism sector especially, with the UK contributing to Malta’s largest tourism market, welcoming over 650,000 British tourists in 2019 alone…

…but is Malta’s placement on the green list all good? Here are the facts.

In recent weeks, the UK has seen a rise in COVID-19 cases and the worst spike in infections since January due to the entry of the Delta COVID-19 variant which has been spreading rapidly amongst communities. Malta has only registered one COVID-19 case being of the Delta variant.

In the meantime, Malta has imposed a number of travel regulations stating that the country will only accept travellers if they present a vaccine certificate. This rule will come into effect on June 30, where travellers who do not present the Malta-issued certificate must undergo 14 days of quarantine. The much-anticipated EU vaccine passport is set for July 1.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel have advised all countries to impose quarantine on British travellers in order to contain the spread of the Delta variant, with French president Emmanuel Macron expressing his concern towards the spread of the variant as well.
