COVID-19 Self-Testing To Become Legal This Week


COVID-19 self-testing kits will now become legal in Malta this week. Furthermore, visitors from red-listed countries will also be allowed to enter Malta upon a negative PCR test or a recovery certificate.




This implementation was brought forward due to the government’s desire to promote greater self-regulation rather than imposing tight regulations. If the test is positive, the individual who took it must enter quarantine and consult with their doctor.


Self-testing kits were illegal in Malta, despite the fact that they were freely available in several EU nations. This ban eventually led to an increase in self-test kits available via the black market.
