Cead Mile Malta!

With the reopening of international travel from Ireland on July 19th, the Maltese islands are delighted to now welcome back Irish visitors who have been fully vaccinated for a least fourteen days and can present their EU Digital Covid Certificate as verification.

 

Children aged between 5 and 11 are only required to present a negative PCR COVID-19 test carried out a maximum of 72 hours prior to arrival in Malta.  Children aged under 5 are exempt from requirements. Malta has the highest vaccination rate in Europe with 82% of its population fully vaccinated and has introduced a number of precautionary measures to ensure visitors can feel as comfortable as possible while enjoying their holiday on the Maltese archipelago.

 

Just a short three-and-a-half-hour direct flight away from Dublin and Cork visitors to the Maltese archipelago can enjoy year-round sun, delicious local cuisine, stunning coastlines and an array of outdoor adventures. The smaller islands of Gozo and Comino can be accessed by ferry, Gozo is the more rural of the islands, while Comino is home to the famous Blue Lagoon.

 

Tolene Van Der Merwe (Director UK & Ireland Malta Tourism Authority) commented, “We’re thrilled that the Maltese islands can now welcome fully vaccinated visitors from Ireland. We are proud of our long-standing and special relationship with Ireland and the people of Malta are looking forward to Irish tourists returning to enjoy our sunshine, culture, food and warm spirit”.
