MALTA will only allow fully jabbed Brits to enter without quarantine after holidays to the island were given the green light.
Earlier this week, Malta was added to the UK's green list – thanks to its low daily Covid case rate and high number of vaccinations.

But the country announced tighter restrictions for UK holidaymakers less than 24 hours after it was added to our green list.
They said that Brits who have not received both jabs will have to quarantine upon arrival.
This means that those who arrive in Malta on June 30 or after will have to quarantine for up to 14 days if they cannot prove they have had two doses.
The announcement came just hours after Malta was added to the UK's green travel list – with the changes taking effect from next Wednesday at 4am.
Assessments are based on a range of factors, including the proportion of a population that has been vaccinated, rates of infection, emerging new variants, and access to reliable scientific data and genomic sequencing.
Malta has some of the lowest cases of Covid across Europe – with no new cases reported yesterday.
It also the leading EU destination for the vaccine, with 58.6 per cent of people fully vaccinated.
Alongside Malta, other holiday destinations were given the green flag after months of uncertainty for travelling Brits.
The Balearic islands of Ibiza, Majorca and Menorca were added to the list – allowing Brits to travel there quarantine free.
Transport Secretary Grant Shapps formally confirmed Malta, the Balearic Islands and Caribbean Islands were among the countries which will be added to the green list.
This will come into effect from Wednesday at 4am, meaning millions of people will be scrambling to book a week or two of escapist fun.
But many of those holiday island spots favoured by Brits have imposed strict party-pooping rules, meaning you could be breaking the law on a night out.
Some of the isles have imposed midnight or 1am curfews and those once famous for all night bar and club opening will be turfing revellers out into the street by 2am at the latest.
Worse still destinations famed for their clubbing have BANNED dancing — indoors and outside.
