All new travellers arriving into Malta will be required to enter a 14-day quarantine period – or face a €1,000 fine.
In a statement on Friday evening (13 March), Maltese prime minister Dr Robert Abela said the measures would come into force with immediate effect.
“All new passengers (including British nationals) arriving in Malta by air or by sea from all countries are obliged to undertake a 14-day continuous period of mandatory quarantine during their stay on Malta, Gozo or Comino, subject to the strict provisions of the law. Self-quarantine for travellers means that they cannot leave their hotel room, cruise ship or self-catering accommodation during their time on the islands,” he said.
The country said if the self-quarantine was breached travellers would face a fine of €1,000 per case.
