Requirements for Entry into Italy from Malta


Passengers travelling to Italy will be required to wear an FFP2 mask throughout their flight and all other types of transport in Italy. This requirement also applies to passengers travelling back to Malta from Italy. Children under the age of 6 years as well as passengers suffering from certified diseases or disabilities which prevent them from wearing face masks are exempt from the obligation to wear an FFP2 mask. These passengers will instead be required to provide proof of a negative PCR test result for Covid-19 taken no earlier than 48 hours prior to flight departure as well as a medical certificate or form declaring the exemption from the use of the mask.



Italy: If you are travelling to Italy from Malta, you will be required to present the EU Digital Covid Certificate (Green Pass) or an equivalent certificate providing proof of ONE of the following:

  • completion of the primary vaccination series or booster dose according to the vaccination plans of the countries of release with vaccines authorized by the European Medical Agency (primary series validity 9 months and booster dose without predefined limit) OR
  • recovery from SARS-CoV-2 infection (valid for 180 days from positive swab test) OR
  • recovery after the administration of the first dose of vaccine or at the end of the primary vaccination series or following the administration of the relevant booster dose OR
  • rapid antigen or molecular swab test, respectively within 48 or 72 hours before entry into Italy.

Any persons who do not present the above documents may be denied boarding by their airline. In case travel is still permitted, they would be required to self-isolate for 5 days on arrival at the address indicated on the passenger locator form, and take a COVID-19 test on the last day.  In addition, travellers will be required to communicate their entry to the Local Health Authority of competence for subsequent treatment.

Children under six (6) years of age are exempt from performing the antigen or PCR test, but not from the obligation of isolation, where applicable. All minors aged six (6) years or older in possession of a green Covid-19 certificate of completion of a vaccination series with an EMA-authorised or equivalent vaccine or of successful recovery follow the rules for adults.

A list of exemptions from these requirements is available HERE.



Should you be unable to present any of the documents listed above, you will be required to observe a 5-day period of self-isolation, at the end of which a molecular or antigen test must be taken.
