Malta International Airport has called for cooperation by passengers as it prepares for a busy weekend ahead.

Passenger numbers are expected to peak at 1,100 simultaneously.

In order for processing efficiency to be maintained even during these peak hours, passengers are reminded to have their documents ready for verification, especially on arrival.

Arriving passengers must complete a digital Passenger Locator Form here, and are asked to ensure that all sections are filled in correctly, particularly the Permanent Address (address at country of residence) and Temporary Address (address of your stay in Malta) sections as well as the flight details.

This form must be presented together with a negative result of a COVID-19 Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test taken not later than 72 hours before arriving in Malta or a valid vaccination certificate. The vaccination certificates being accepted by the Malta Superintendence of Public Health are listed below. 

  • Malta Vaccine Certificate
  • United Kingdom NHS COVID Pass (digital app version or paper certificate)
  • EU Digital COVID Certificate

These certificates are only accepted if they indicate that vaccination has been received in full and if at least 14 days have passed from the administration of the last dose. Passengers are also reminded that the Malta Superintendence of Public Health is currently not accepting the EU Digital COVID Recovery Certificate as a valid entry document.

Departing passengers, on the other hand, may view the travel requirements of their destination country on maltairport.com/covid19/departure/. Outbound passengers are reminded to call at the terminal check-in counters for their health documents to be checked prior to departure, irrespective of whether they would have already checked in online or not.

Malta International Airport thanked passengers for their cooperation, and encouraged travellers to visit maltairport.com/covid19/ for more information about travel requirements and the passenger journey.
