Several tourists visit each year, attracted by the beautiful beaches and lagoons, diverse watersports, vibrant nightlife, archaeological sites and picturesque harbour towns. Malta boasts three UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the historic capital city Valletta, the seven megalithic temples and the hypogeum (a prehistoric underground structure). Valletta is also preparing to take on the mantle of European Capital of Culture in 2018.

Student Visa Requirements

Students from within the EU, the US and a number of other countries would not require a visa to study in Malta for less than three months.However, if you plan to stay for longer, please check with your nearest Maltese embassy or consulate to find out whether you need a visa. If you do, the visa requirements for Malta are as follows:

  • Completed visa application form

  • Proof of access to sufficient funds to cover tuition fees and living expenses

All international students wishing to study in Malta for more than three months should apply for an e-residence document, which is replacing the old identity card system.
