Contact Point for Visa information for MT nationals

Any requests for visa advise should take place either by sending an email or by calling at the Visa Advisory Unit. Further details, including the contacting hours may be found in the Contact Us section.


The Ministry for Foreign and European Affairs is not responsible for the issuing of visas to Maltese nationals by foreign states. Visa requirements for Maltese nationals going abroad are invariably subject to changes by host countries. The Ministry endeavours to provide information available to it at the time of submission of the query. The information related to visa requirements contained in this document is only indicative and is issued to assist Maltese ordinary passport holders. The Ministry shall not be held responsible for any variance in the information provided. The applicant may wish to double-check requirements independently of this service. It is his/her responsibility to ensure that enquiries are submitted well in advance of the planned date of departure. Information should also be double-checked closer to the date of departure prior to travelling to countries that ordinarily do not require a visa for Maltese passport holders.
