Many people are worried or uninformed of the changes for travel to Malta and what it might mean for their Gozo or Malta Holiday.
There will not be a great deal of change to the travel arrangements and the current process you are used to, however, it is worth noting the below key points.
our passport must have at least 6 months left and be less than 10 years old (even if it has 6 months or more left.)Passport rules for travel to Europe - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)Visas:
You can travel to countries in the Schengen area for up to 90 days in any 180-day period without a visa, meaning that, as of 01/01/2021, British passport holders can enjoy a visa-free period of 90 days over 6 months in Malta. If you intend to remain in Malta after this period, you may be required to apply for a visa. Entry requirements - Malta travel advice - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)
However, if you intend to conduct work within the 90-day period, then you are to request a temporary license issued directly by Jobsplus in Malta. You can find more information by visiting their website Jobsplus (gov.mt)
or by sending them an e-mail on firstname.lastname@example.org
It is important to note, that each EU member state has its own requirements in terms of local employment, and so a license from Malta cannot be used outside the country. If you need a visa, you must book an appointment with VFS or email the High Commission on email@example.com
t well ahead of your planned travel (visas take a minimum of 2 weeks to be processed).At Maltese border control:
you may need to use separate lanes from EU, EEA and Swiss citizens when queueing. Your passport may be stamped on entry and exit and you may also need to show a return or onward ticket and show you have enough money for your stay.
We recommend UK nationals travelling to the EU should have either:
• a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC)
• a UK Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC)
In addition to comprehensive insurance, an EHIC or GHIC is not a replacement for travel insurance.Apply for a UK Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC) - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)Driving in the EU:
