Non-EU citizens (also known as third-country nationals) may visit Malta by means of a Schengen visa, which allows free movement within the whole Schengen Zone to European Union Schengen members as well as EFTA Schengen members. A Schengen visa is valid for a maximum of 90 days within every six-month period starting from the date of entry.
Those non-EU citizens hailing from the visa free-regime countries and who are exempt from applying for a Schengen Visa for travel purposes for the first 90 days are expected to apply for a National Visa if they wish to stay longer than 90 days.
The attainment of a Schengen visa to enter and reside for a specific amount of time in a Schengen area does not mean that the holder of such visa may take up employment or study in Malta.
Please visit the Central Visa Unit section for more information on visa matters.
