Belgians will be able to visit Malta again from 15 July, the Times of Malta reported based on a communication from the Maltese Ministry of Public Health.
The Ministry of Public Health on Friday published a list of countries to which Maltese are allowed to travel and from which travellers are allowed to enter the Maltese islands. Nearly 30 countries are concerned. Besides Belgium, it includes countries like the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Bulgaria and Romania.
Non-European travellers – including Canadians, Australians, South Koreans and New Zealanders – are also welcome again.
In Belgium, Malta is on the list of countries in the red zone drawn up by the Belgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. If the country returns to the green zone, Belgians will be able to travel there without restrictions from 15 July.
Malta was not severely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, with 674 confirmed infections and nine deaths according to data from Johns Hopkins University. For comparison, Belgium has counted 62,707 confirmed cases since the beginning of the pandemic.
