Welcome to the website of the Embassy of Malta in Portugal.

Malta’s links with Portugal, a European partner, go back a long time in history when Malta was under the Knights of St John.The role of the Maltese Embassy in Portugal is to enrich the continuous development and collaboration that exist between the two countries in political, economic and cultural activities. Malta is an excellent location for Investment, Trade, Education and Tourism. Malta and Portugal can continue to work together in order to strengthen the mutual benefits that have already been derived from these sectors.

We hope that this site will be useful for Maltese and Portuguese Citizens.
