Travel Information for students travelling to Malta

Arrivals

 

If airport transfers have been booked you will be met at the airport by our Transportation Representative who will be holding up a sign with your name on it. If you encounter any difficulties during your arrival, or in case of a delay, change in flight or cancellation, you are kindly asked to contact our Transportation Representative. A refund will not be given if we are not advised in time of any flight changes or if you opt for a private transfer.

Departures

One should check-in at least 90 minutes before time of departure, therefore pick-up time from your accommodation will be 2.5 hours before your flight departs. In order not to lose your airport transfer, we strongly recommend that you comply with your pick-up time. Should your pick-up be delayed by more than 30 minutes you are kindly asked to contact our Transportation Company.

Entry Requirements

Malta is part of the Schengen Agreement, therefore citizens of countries within the Schengen Zone may enter Malta for up to 90 days for tourist or business purposes without a visa. However you must have a passport or ID card valid three months beyond the proposed stay. For example for a two-week trip, the passport must be valid for 4 months, for a two-month holiday the passport must be valid for five monhts. Children under the age of 16 may travel on the valid passport of the parent with whom they are travelling, if they are included on that passport.

 

Traffic

Traffic in Malta flows on the left, therefore visitors who are accustomed to driving on the right should be more attentive and cautious. The speed limit on country roads is 80 km/h and 50 km/h in built up areas. A fully comprehensive insurance is recommended and an international driving licence is valid.

 

 

Health

Medical Care in Malta is available through public and private hospitals. The quality of medical care in Malta is excellent.
