Welcome to the website of the Embassy of the Republic of Malta to the United Arab Emirates in Abu Dhabi.

The Embassy’s role is to promote Malta’s interests in the United Arab Emirates. The Embassy works to strengthen the bilateral relations between Malta and the United Arab Emirates, primarily through diplomatic relations with the Emirati Government, commercial exchanges, as well as numerous initiatives in other sectors. 

Malta and the United Arab Emirates have a long-standing relationship which goes from strength to strength. This strong relationship is based on mutual bilateral interests and on a shared objective of promoting peace and prosperity in both our regions.

As a European country which has traditionally enjoyed strong links with the Arab world, Malta is uniquely placed to work with our partners in the United Arab Emirates and the Gulf. In addition, given its strong economic growth Malta is an ideal location for investment, trade and education, in addition to being a top tourism destination at the centre of the Mediterranean Sea.

I hope that you will find this website of the Embassy of Malta in Abu Dhabi helpful and of interest.
