As from 6 June, children under 12 years of age will no longer be obliged to present a negative PCR test in order to enter Malta, said Health Minister Chris Fearne on Tuesday.

Answering a parliamentary question about what Covid-19 measures were still in place, he said that up until now children under 12 years of age had to present a negative PCR test upon entering Malta.


As from 6 June, this requirement will be removed.

Another measure which will also be removed on the same day is the mandatory social distancing measure currently present in Childcare centres.

After the 6 June they will be able to operate as per their individual licencing agreements.

Fearne said that these were all positive steps which will ultimately lead to the life everyone had before the Covid-19 pandemic arrived on Malta’s shores in March 2020.
