One requires a schengen visa to travel to Malta. All the applications for the Schengen visa must be filed at the diplomatic mission of the main destination country of the visit. 

In the case when the applicant intends on visiting several Schengen countries, the application for it must be filed at the diplomatic mission of the country of first entry into Schengen. 

Thus, applicants who wish to visit Malta as the main destination, or being the country of first entry into the Schengen area, must file their applications at Malta’s diplomatic missions or its representations*

All the applications for schengen visa must be submitted in writing along with the application form duly filled, and signed by the applicant. Along with the form the applicant is required to present:

  • One (1) passport-size photograph, in colour and taken against a white background, with the face clearly visible;
  • A valid travel document (passport) validity of which must not be less than three (3) months;
