Honorary Consul for Malta,
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

As members of the Commonwealth, Malta and Malaysia have been associated with each other for a very long time. Malta has a very good relationship with Malaysia and also has a non-resident High Commissioner for Malaysia. However the amount of trade between the two countries has been relatively very small in the past. As the High Commissioner for Malta in Malaysia is non-resident, the Maltese Government decided to appoint an Honorary Consul to look after the interest of Maltese citizens in Malaysia and in particular to improve the commercial ties between the two countries

Presently Malaysian (and Singaporeans) citizens do not require a Visa to enter the Schengen Area which includes the territory of 26 European Union countries including Malta. However Citizen of certain countries (Third Countries) will need an Entry Visa or a Transit Visa to enter the Schengen Area.

The Maltese Consulate in Kuala Lumpur does not issue visas to enter Malta or the Schengen Area and any person in Malaysia requiring a visa to visit Malta should contact the Austrian Embassy as follows.

Like Malaysia, Malta’s long term prosperity depends on successful and sustainable enterprise and to this end Malta is committed to make it easier for enterprises to establish a mutually advantageous commercial relationship between the two countries. The Maltese Honorary Consulate has been established to assist Malaysian companies or entrepreneurs who would like to explore the possibilities of profitable business with Malta, in association with the Maltese Government agency Malta Enterprise. Please complete the Business Enquiry Form as an initial introduction of your business if you would like to initiate business in Malta or with Maltese companies.

In order to assist Maltese citizens, any Maltese descents and others who have a Maltese connections living or staying in Malaysia for any purpose, it is important for the Maltese Consulate to know their next of kin in case of any emergency and or any unforeseen problems. I therefore would like to invite such person to register with the Maltese Consulate Office by returning the completed the unofficial Registration Form by post or email.

Complementary to the above the Minister of Foreign Affair has issued a formal voluntary registration form for all Maltese Citizens living abroad temporary or permanent. For more details please refer to the website:
