Malta welcomes UAE travellers again from 14 July



Three weekly flights via Larnaca in Cyprus will resume with Emirates.

Malta is now offering quarantine-free travel for UAE residents after Emirates announced the resumption of three weekly services to Malta via Larnaca, Cyprus, starting from 14 July 2021. 

With elaborate vaccination plans and a low number of COVID-19 cases, Malta was recently added to Abu Dhabi’s green list. The island destination is home to dazzling crystalline beaches, impressive historical and cultural sights, UNESCO archaeological attractions, and a wide array of fun-packed activities.

Emirates will operate three weekly flights through the already existing Larnaca service on the two-class Boeing 777-300ER. The flights will be on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, and they will arrive in Larnaca first, then continue onto Malta.

Based on Emirates’ guidelines, UAE travellers visiting Malta aged five and over must hold a negative COVID-19 test certificate for a test taken within 72 hours of arrival in Malta. Passengers must also present a completed Passenger Locator Form (PLF) and a negative COVID-19 PCR test certificate at check-in to travel to Malta.

Recently, Malta Tourism Authority has cooperated with local hotels to launch the Incentives for Free Independent Travelers, whereby Malta Tourism Authority will directly incentivise independent travellers visiting the Maltese Islands to book their holiday stays in five, four, and three-star hotels with discounted rates.

Malta is home to five Michelin star restaurants that act as an exceptional gateway to Malta’s gastronomical traditions. It is also the set of many Hollywood productions, including the movies Gladiator and Troy and the international hit series Game of Thrones, which had one of its seasons shot in the historical city of Mdina.

The Maltese islands in the heart of the Mediterranean offer the perfect summer destination for families, with moderate temperatures all year round and an exciting collection of family-friendly water and land-based activities.
