The number of countries from which arrivals to Malta are required to submit a negative COVID-19 test result on arrival has more than doubled.
The revised 'amber list', which now includes Canada, Japan, Thailand and Turkey, among others, will come into effect on Saturday.
Any traveller from these countries will have to present a negative PCR COVID-19 test performed no longer than 72 hours prior to their arrival. Those who fail to do so could be submitted to testing in Malta and may also have to quarantine.
The countries that made it in the amber list are the following:
France (all airports except Ile-de-France)
Germany (all airports except Baden-Wurttemberg)
Greece (all airport except Attiki)
Italy (all airports except Sicily and Sardegna)
Portugal (all airports except Madeira, Azores)
Spain (all airports except Canarias)
