Malta has confirmed it won’t impose an inbound quarantine requirement on UK visitors this summer.
The island nation has placed the UK on its "amber list" ahead of its plans to reopen to foreign tourists from 1 June.
This means visitors who have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19 at least 14 days prior arriving in Malta will be able to enter the country with the need for a test.
They will have to provide proof of vaccination in the form of their vaccination card when boarding.
Amber list status means those who visitors who have not been vaccinated against Covid-19 will also be able to travel to Malta without having to quarantine.
Non-vaccinated visitors will have to provide certificate evidence of a negative PCR test for Covid-19 taken up to 72 hours prior to their flight.
It comes as Malta on Tuesday (27 April) confirmed more than 50% of the country’s adult population had received their first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, with one in five having received their full vaccine course – the highest rate of vaccination in Europe.
Tolene Van Der Merwe, Malta Tourism Authority director UK and Ireland, said: "We’re thrilled to be able to share the news that more than 50% of the adult population in Malta have now vaccinated as it means we are another step closer to welcoming vaccinated travellers, or those that can present a negative PCR test from the United Kingdom from 1 June.
"We are proud of our long-standing and special relationship with Great Britain and the people of Malta are looking forward to tourists returning to enjoy our sunshine, culture, food and warm spirit year in, year out."
