Exemption from the Travel Ban to transiting yachts

Exemption from the Travel Ban to transiting yachts

Transiting yachts are exempt from the travel ban if they are only with crew on board and with the aim of berthing in Malta for certain necessities.


In the Government Gazette, the Superintendent of Public Health notified that the current travel ban from/to Malta does not apply to transiting yachts with only crew on board, from countries outside Malta, with the objective of berthing in Maltese ports for the purpose of refuelling, repairs, servicing, flagging, customs procedures and other ancillary necessities. This exemption comes into force with effect from 5 June 2020.
