Malta To Pay Tourists Up To €200 To Visit This Summer

Malta has proposed a new policy in which tourists from the United Kingdom could be paid to vacation on the island. 

International tourists who stay for at least three days on the Mediterranean island may earn up to €200 (£173.59) from the Maltese government. 

Tourism Minister Clayton Bartolo unveiled the scheme last week in an attempt to revitalize the country’s tourism industry, which has been virtually halted due to Covid.  ‘The scheme is aimed at putting Malta’s hotels in a very competitive position as international tourism restarts,’ he said.

The amount paid to travelers will be determined by the hotel’s star ranking. Booking a five-star hotel, for example, entitles you to €100 from Malta’s Tourism Authority, which would be balanced by the hotel for a total of €200. 

Those that book to stay at a four-star hotel will receive €150, and those who choose a three-star hotel will receive €100. Booking in Gozo (a Maltese island two miles north of the mainland) will also increase your grant by 10%. 

Hotels would need to be booked directly, so double-check before you commit to booking a holiday. In addition to these fees, the tourist board has stated that they are eager to accept Brits who have been fully vaccinated as of July 1st. In addition to the payments, the tourist board has stated that they are eager to accept Brits who have been fully vaccinated as of July 1st. 

At the moment, it is unclear whether the British government will allow international travel, with a ban on all non-essential foreign travel in effect until at least May 17. When this transition occurs, a traffic light system will show the conditions for testing and quarantine.
