Travel Advice

Introduction

The Ministry for Foreign and European Affairs and Trade of Malta provides travel advice on its website to inform the general public of conditions abroad that may affect the safety and security of Maltese nationals travelling, working or living abroad.


What is Travel Advice?

Travel advice contains information about safety and security issues in specific countries. It is issued in response to safety and security developments around the world. Travel advice is kept under review and is updated to reflect changes in the level of risk to Maltese nationals.

Travel advice is graded across different levels according to the overall assessment of the security situation on the ground in the respective country. It may be of different levels for different regions within the same country.

In the current pandemic environment the risk of finding oneself unable to return to Malta is plausible and beyond the Ministry’s control. Under certain circumstances our diplomatic and consular representations may be unable to assist.
