Upper Barrakka Gardens, Valletta

Welcome back! Our picturesque beaches, tranquil waters, historic honey-coloured architecture and the people of the Maltese Islands have missed you and your clients. Malta’s excellent performance in managing COVID-19 has been acknowledged by the European Commission, Commonwealth, World Health Organisation and United Nations World Tourism Organisation.

Take our Reopening Course, which will provide you with the information to sell the Mediterranean archipelago with confidence. Malta, Gozo and Comino await just 3h 45m away from Dublin and Cork.

Accommodation and Dining

All accommodation and dining providers must comply to Maltese Government protocols devised to safeguard the safety of guests and employees.  The guidelines include maintaining social distancing of 2m, increased levels of hygiene and the wearing of masks or visors by staff.   Malta Tourism Authority will inspect accommodation before it is certified to reopen, with approved businesses awarded a Certified Compliant sticker to display and audits will be carried out periodically to ensure standards are adhered to. Buffets and self-service counter dining are no longer on offer in the archipelago.

Experiencing Malta

Malta is ensuring travellers can still enjoy the island’s culture, history, landmarks and beautiful scenery with daily beach cleans, more frequent cleaning of public amenities, and 2m distance between sunbeds and umbrellas. Social distancing and hygiene protocols will also be in place at beaches, swimming pools, shops, museums and attractions.
