Malta is the latest destination to offer quarantine-free access to passengers from the UAE.

Emirates Airline is set to resume three weekly services to Malta via Larnaca (Cyprus) from July 14.

Customers will also have seamless access to European cities via the airline's codeshare agreement with Air Malta.

Effective June 2, Emirates passengers travelling to Malta, who are 5 years old or above, are required to hold a negative COVID-19 PCR test certificate for a test taken within 72 hours of arrival in Malta.

They must also present a completed Passenger Locator Form (PLF) and a negative PCR test certificate at check-in to be accepted for travel to Malta.

Fully vaccinated Maltese nationals or Malta residency permit holders may present a Maltese vaccination certificate instead of a negative COVID-19 PCR test certificate when returning to Malta.
