On arrival in Maltese territorial waters they should call Valletta Port Control on Channel 12 to advise them of their arrival and await instructions. When told to proceed to their Marina they should call the Marina on VHF Channel 13.

Visitors from outside the approved list of countries may be accepted if they are able to prove that they have been in one of the countries on the approved list for at least 14 days before travelling to Malta.

Yacht owners should be aware that face masks or visors are obligatory in shops and offices in Malta. Bars, restaurants and places of entertainment are open and do not require face masks.

Face masks can be purchased from any local pharmacy.
