BEFORE YOU GO

On Your Malta Tour

Passport Requirements for Malta Tours

American and Canadian citizens must have a passport that is valid for at least 3 months beyond the intended return date in order to enter and depart Malta. Tourists must also provide proof of return or onward travel. Each traveler is responsible for ensuring that his/her passport is up to date. Citizens of other nationalities should check with respective authorities before departure. Please ensure that the name on your passport matches all travel documents we have issued. If this is not the case, please contact us immediately.

Please make a photocopy of your passport’s identification page and keep it separate from the original. It’s also a good idea to leave a digital copy with someone at home. This may speed the replacement process should you lose your passport.

Visa Requirements for Malta Tours

Both Canadian and American citizens traveling on regular passports for business or tourist purposes do not need a visa for a stay less than 90 days. Please note that if you are staying longer than 90 days, obtaining a visa is your responsibility. This may be different for citizens of other countries. These requirements change often and therefore it is recommended that you check with the Embassy of Malta for the most up- to-date information.

You may be required to pay a departure tax when flying within the country or departing it, though many airline tickets cover this cost.

Insurance Recommendations for Malta Tours

Cancelation and Medical Insurance is highly recommended. Medical facilities are poor quality and not widespread, and insurance can safeguard against in-country medical emergencies as well as lost or delayed baggage and emergency cancelation or interruption of your trip. Please ensure your policy will provide you with upfront medical coverage so that you are not responsible for a hefty medical bill.

Medication Requirements for Malta Tours

If there are any medical items essential to your health, such as prescription drugs or corrective eye wear, bring duplicates and divide them between your checked bags and hand luggage. While non-prescription drugs such as aspirin are generally available, it is difficult to replace prescription items.
Other recommended Items:
• Sunscreen (SPF 30 or higher), after-sun lotion, lip balm, sunglasses
• Insect repellent with a high concentration of DEET (at least 30 percent)
• Basic medicine kit (painkillers, band-aids, antiseptic cream, etc.)
• Digestive aids such as Imodium, Pepto-Bismol. Also, re-hydration salts and anti-diarrhea preparations
• Hydrocortisone tablets or cream for allergic skin reactions and bites
• Anti-nausea tablets if you suffer from motion sickness
