Recovery certificates are not valid for entry into Malta. The Maltese health authorities encourage travellers to get vaccinated and obtain a recognised vaccine certificate prior to their travel. Travellers from countries where travel is permitted who are in possession of a vaccine certificate recognised by the Government of Malta are not required to quarantine on arrival. In the case of travellers who choose to travel with a test certificate rather than a vaccine certificate, only test certificates documenting negative RT-PCR tests performed not longer than seventy-two (72) hours before scheduled arrival are accepted for entry into Malta. Travellers 12 years and over travelling with a negative nasopharyngeal PCR test instead of a recognised vaccine certificate will still need to undergo a mandatory quarantine period of 14 days on arrival.
