From 19 August, new COVID-19 restrictions came into force in Malta, including:
- The wearing of face masks is mandatory everywhere outside of your residence.
- No gatherings of more than 6 people in public places, including at bus stops and in queues.
A fine of one hundred Euro (€100) will apply if either of the above regulations is breached. If the offence is admitted to, and the fine paid before legal proceedings commence, the fine shall be reduced to fifty Euro (€50).
- Bars and social clubs will remain closed until further notice.
- From midnight 21 August, arrivals into Malta will be categorised into a traffic light system, according to country of residence. Travellers from 'green' countries will have no restrictions, 'red' will be banned, and those from 'amber' countries will need to provide a negative swab test from the 72 hours prior to arrival. Please view the full travel requirements for each category.
