COVID-19 Malta Update 24th June 10:45

Goodbye lockdown – Hello Malta

Malta is lifting restrictions on all flight arrivals including the UK from July 15.
Air Malta, British Airways, easyJet, Jet2 and Ryanair aim to resume services from 18 UK airports.

Welcome Back

Covid-19 has spread around the world, sending billions of people into lockdown – the Maltese had to change the way they live. Thankfully, timely correct measures were taken by the Maltese to check the virus. Malta’s tremendous performance has been acknowledged by the European Commission, the Commonwealth, the World Health Organisation, the United Nations World Tourism Organisation and others.
Several prominent publications have included Malta amongst the safest countries to visit in a post-Covid situation.
As conditions recover sufficiently in various countries, Malta is now ready to welcome visitors.
Meanwhile, the Maltese Islands have been setting up to ensure your stay is pleasant, rewarding and safe.

Unwind and Enjoy

The hotel and accommodation establishments which are open, must comply with the protocols planned to safeguard the welfare of guests and employees. The Malta Tourism Authority will scrutinize establishments before they open to certify they are conforming with COVID-19 procedures. The plan is to provide the highest levels of hygiene and wellbeing.
Periodic reviews will be carried out to confirm compliance to these principles. Hotels, restaurants and other establishments will be awarded a special sticker. 

This sticker is displayed near the entry to indicate an establishment is compliant. If an establishment is found to be non-compliant, the sticker will be repossessed and prompt action will be taken by the authorities.

Hotel staff are trained to maintain the required safety levels in terms of health and hygiene, whilst giving the best service possible to guests.
Hotels, restaurants, shops and attractions have also invested in equipment intended to remove risks, allowing you to relax and enjoy your stay.

 

Catering establishments, including restaurants and snack bars, must also accept protocols to guarantee maximum cleanliness and safety. The same principles of social distancing and hygiene that apply for hotels, apply for restaurants. In this case, social distancing refers mostly to the spacing out of tables and chairs so that people are at a safe distance away from one other. This distance varies depending on whether the seating is indoors or outdoors.
The emphasis is on maintaining a high level of cleanliness throughout the establishment. Restaurants are also inspected and certified compliant by the Malta Tourism Authority, for your peace of mind.

Top Summer Fun

Endless sunshine, incredible history, stunning beaches and hearty local food a are synonymous with Maltese summers.
This summer is no different, however new measures will make the beaches safer and cleaner. Procedures include daily beach cleaning, more frequent bin emptying, disinfection of public toilets, spacing out deckchairs & umbrellas and following social distancing of two metres when queuing.Beach, sea, sun and fun is still very much ongoing.   

If you prefer to swim in pools, the same principles apply. There will be a minimum distance of two metres in every direction between each unit of one umbrella and two sunbeds in pool areas. Pool staff will wear visors and will take care that all equipment and surfaces are carefully cleaned and sanitised frequently. Bathing capacity will be reduced by 50% - providing you with more space for swimming and lounging.

  

Shops, museums and tourist attractions are open to the public and will be following the same safety procedures.

Maltese public transport is operating normally. Procedures are in place to ensure frequent freshening and total disinfection of buses and coaches takes place.
Taxis are sanitised after each trip and rental cars are cleaned & disinfected fully after being returned by clients.
