    Imagine holding a passport that takes you anywhere across the globe, even without a visa. You get to travel, do business or study in a broader world! For some, it may sound unthinkable, but in Malta, it is a reality.  

    With the Malta Citizenship by Naturalisation for Exceptional Services by Direct Investment, non-EU/EA/Swiss high-net-worth individuals can maximise the opportunities that the Maltese passport offers. Acquiring Maltese citizenship has numerous benefits–business and economic stability, to name a few.  

    And the ultimate advantage? Visa-free access to 186 countries worldwide!  

     

    The Maltese passport allows holders to travel to 144 countries without a visa. Thirty-one countries issue visas upon arrival, and 11 countries require electronic travel authorisation (eTA). Not only can you save money and time for visa processing, but you also obtain mobility.  

    Where all around the world can your Maltese Passport take you?

    Here is the comprehensive list of visa-free countries for all Malta passport holders.

    Visa-free Schengen Area Countries with Malta Passport

    Malta joined the Schengen Area in 2007, along with 25 other countries. The Schengen Acquis (a set of rules and regulations) regulates the internal border, controls abolishment and strengthens the external border controls. The Acquis holds the Schengen Agreement, Convention and Accession Agreements, Treaties, Regulations, Directives, Decisions, Delegated Acts, Implementing Acts, and the case-law of the Court of Justice.  

    The Schengen Agreement, signed in 1985, is the treaty that built a borderless Europe, now known as the “Schengen Area.” It is the region’s most important borderless zone, including 22 European Union member countries and four non-EU countries.  

    Out of the 26 Schengen Area nations, three EU member countries have opted not to apply or fully apply the Schengen rules. These countries are Cyprus, Ireland, the United Kingdom.
