Malta Prepares to Welcome Back Tourists as of June 1, 2021


As Malta prepares to welcome back tourists as of June 1, 2021, it opened up non-essential shops and services today,  with plans to ease further measures within two weeks.

An archipelago in the Mediterranean, Malta has been setting high standards in the administration of the COVID-19 Vaccine, ever since its National Vaccination Program kicked off on December 27th, 2020.

In fact, as of today, over 50% of the adult population has now been vaccinated with at least one dose of the vaccine, while 1 in 5 have also received the second dose as 100,686 second doses were administered as of Sunday April 25th, 2021.



Now, with people aged 40+ and 50+ currently registering to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, Malta is in fact the first country to be providing the vaccine to the general population age bracket. This is following a staggered approach, which saw various cohorts receive the vaccine as per their age, namely 85+ Years (93% vaccinated); 80+ years (89% vaccinated); 70+ Years (90% vaccinated); and 60+ years (85% vaccinated).

“All of this augurs well for when Malta intends to start welcoming back tourists from June 1st, 2021, confirmed by  Malta’s Prime Minister, Robert Abela, during a recent press conference. The Malta Tourism Authority is launching various strategies as part of its Tourism Recovery Plan, aimed at incentivising tourists, hotels, and tour operators alike, to ensure that anyone can enjoy a safe, healthy and much-needed summer holiday” Johann Buttigieg, MTA CEO said.
