“Britain is Malta’s largest inbound tourism market and it is, therefore, disappointing to learn that the UK Government placed Malta on the travel quarantine list. The decision is respected, and Malta will continue to work closely with the British Government for the decision to be reversed. 


Malta has one of the highest testing rates in Europe, meaning new cases have been quickly identified, located and those affected are placed in quarantine. Testing, contact tracing and quarantining are key to Malta managing the virus to make Maltese citizens and tourists feel safe.


In 2019 Malta welcomed 650,000 British travellers. The country has strong air connections with the UK with four airlines operating from 18 regional hubs.”
