The Consulate of Malta began accepting tourism visa applications from March 27, 2022, the Maltese Ambassador to Libya, Charles Saliba, has confirmed.

The Libya Observer has learned from the ambassador that the fees shall be governed by EU regulations, explaining that tourist visas will cost € 80 for those over 12 years and € 40 for children between 6 and 12.

He also noted that visa external service providers would also charge a service fee of not more than 40 euros, with the fees payable in Dinars equivalent.

According to the ambassador, the options available include medical, business, education, and family visas, giving notice that those who wish to apply for a visa may contact VFS Global Tripoli directly online to schedule an appointment.

"This was only possible by collective effort with the Consul of Malta Mr. Sandro Magro, and the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs," Ambassador Saliba said.

Regarding the visa procedures in Benghazi, Ambassador Saliba confirmed that discussions are on with the service provider, expecting to reach an agreement on the issue in the coming weeks.

He emphasized that Malta, despite the current situation in Libya, will continue to support Libya and the Libyan people.
