As with all countries, some nationals need to have a visa to be able to visit Malta.
If you indeed do need a visa, make sure that you apply for it well in advance of traveling to Malta, since some visas may take weeks to get processed.
If you are a European Union national, you do not need a visa if you’re staying in Malta for up to 3 months. The same goes for nationals of Australia, Canada, Croatia, Iceland, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Switzerland and the United States of America.
There are other countries in addition to the above, that do not need a visa. For a full list of countries that do not require a visa and those who indeed do need a visa, visit the Ministry of Foreign Affairs website here.
Note: It is recommended that you always check with the Maltese Ministry of Foreign Affairs website for the latest visa updates, since things may change from time to time.
If you have any queries, your embassy should be able to assist you.
