On July 23, the Malta Tourism Authority inked an agreement with Verifly allowing travelers from the U.S. to Malta to verify their Covid-19 vaccination status and other documentation required for entry.
The Verifly app, available on the Google and Apple app stores, verifies that the passenger's information matches the requirements set by Malta and displays a simple pass or fail message. Following that, the passenger will be guided to fill in the Passenger Locator Form for entry into Malta.

"This agreement showcases Malta's ability to rapidly adjust to the new challenges pertaining to travel. The Verifly app will serve as an important tool to secure peace of mind for Americans and the Maltese public health in general," said minister for tourism and consumer protection Clayton Bartolo.
"We will continue working hard to assure that the local tourism sector pursues its path toward recovery in a sustainable and responsible manner," he said.
