Authorities in the Netherlands have revised their travel advice for Malta as from today - Malta is no longer a COVID high-risk area for The Netherlands. This means that when visiting Malta, Dutch citizens will not be required to quarantine for 15 days.

This follows a similar advice given by Denmark on Friday.


“The Maltese Government’s strategy of a strong vaccination roll out complimented with restrictive measures aimed at being eased in a gradual manner are the main ingredients behind this sterling news. The Dutch market remains a crucial one for a small island state like Malta in attracting high quality tourism to our country. Opening our tourism industry in a responsible manner is key to ensure a sustainable future for one of the major pillars of the Maltese economy, Minister for Tourism and Consumer Protection Clayton Bartolo said. 

MTA Chief Executive Officer Johann Buttigieg said that “all of this augurs well for Malta’s tourism season this summer, which is set to kick start on the 1st June. We look forward to more countries reviewing their travel advice for Malta, so that their respective citizens can finally start planning their much-needed, relaxing, and safe holiday this Summer.”
