Can events, meeting and incentives be held in Malta?

For group gatherings and events of more than 100 pax, the organiser is required to apply for a permit from The Malta Tourism Authority and submit a risk assessment plan. For contact tracing purposes details of attendees of organised events are kept on hold for 4 weeks.

All venues and catering establishments must adhere to regulations on capacities, based on one person per 4 square meters and no more than 10 people per group. Catering establishments and hotels open for business have been inspected by the Malta Tourism Authority and certified compliant with health and safety protocols in place. A visible seal 'Certified Compliant' can be found on the entrance of each establishment. Regular assessments are carried out.
