Malta refuses to accept NHS digital app

The Maltese government confirmed it will not now accept a digital version of the NHS app as proof of a vaccination.

It will accept a printed hard copy.

Although Malta is on the green list, travellers from the UK must present proof of being fully vaccinated to avoid quarantine.

It takes effect today as Malta officially joins the green list.

"From 30 June 2021, the Maltese authorities have announced that they will require all arrivals from the United Kingdom to present proof of full vaccination. Only the paper version of the NHS Covid letter will be accepted," the FCDO said.

"Children aged five to 11 can travel if they are accompanying their vaccinated parents or legal guardian and must show evidence of a negative PCR test taken 72 hours prior to arrival. Under-fives do not need a test."

Malta will accept the EU vaccine passport from 1 July.
