Malta will pay tourists 200 euros each




The tourism sector generates 27% of the island nation's economy. Because of the pandemic, this industry has actually come to a standstill.





The Maltese authorities intend to pay up to 200 euros this summer to foreign tourists who will spend at least three days in the country. This was reported by the Reuters news agency.

On Friday, the country's Tourism Minister, Clayton Bartolo, unveiled a plan that would see most restrictions on the coronavirus in Malta lifted by June 1, and tourists who book hotels for the summer will receive bonus payments.

So, tourists who have booked a room in a five-star hotel will receive 200 euros, in a four–star hotel-150 euros, and for a reservation in a three-star hotel-100 euros. Payments will increase by 10% if the guest chooses a property on the island of Gozo-three kilometers north of Malta.

“The scheme aims to put Malta's hotels in a very competitive position as international tourism resumes,” the minister explained.

It is indicated that the tourism sector, directly and indirectly, generates 27% of the economy of the island state, and because of the pandemic, the industry has actually frozen. While more than 2.7 million people visited Malta in 2019, this figure fell by more than 80% in 2020.
