UAE residents now have the option to take a quarantine-free holiday in Malta
Malta is now offering quarantine-free travel for UAE residents. Emirates announced that it will resume three weekly services to Malta via Larnaca, Cyprus from 14 July 2021.
A new addition to Abu Dhabi’s green list, Malta has established itself as a desirable tourist destination with a low number of Covid-19 cases and an extensive vaccination programme.
Emirates will operate three weekly flights through the already existing Larnaca service on the two-class Boeing 777-300ER. The flights will be on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, and they will arrive in Larnaca first, then resume to Malta.
Based on Emirates’ guidelines, UAE travellers visiting Malta, who are over the age of 5, are required to present a negative PCR test certificate taken within 72 hours of check-in and present a completed Passenger Locator Form (PLF).
Malta Tourism Authority (MTA) recently partnered with local hotels to launch the Incentives for Free Independent Travellers (FIT), where MTA will incentivise independent travellers to book their holiday stays in three- to five-star hotels with discounted rates.
