Welcome to the website of the Embassy of the Republic of Malta in Rome.

Diplomatic relations between the Republic of Malta and the Italian Republic were established in 1964, immediately after Malta attained its independence from Great Britain.  Bilateral relations between the two countries have always been strong and have continued to flourish over the years, also drawing on the centuries-old historical, cultural and linguistic links.

The Embassy of Malta in Rome endeavours to strengthen bilateral relations and aims to build on the solid work that has already been achieved over the years. The Embassy, therefore, aims to take the ties between Malta and Italy to a higher level. Malta and Italy work very closely on Euro-Mediterranean issues, also in the context of their membership of the European Union.

The Embassy, also through its Honorary Consuls in various regions of Italy, is committed to providing a variety of services in an efficient manner and invites you to visit this portal to help you explore the potential of Malta as an investment location, ideal for doing business and a tourist attraction of a kind.
