Arriving in Malta

Make sure you attend the orientation sessions which we organise prior to the start of the academic year or semester, in October and in February. So plan your arrival in Malta in time for these informative sessions. 

Remember to pack in the following items in your hand luggage:
  • passport 
  • national Identity Card 
  • acceptance letter 
  • original academic documents
  • prescription for any medication
  • vaccination records
  • return ticket and insurance
  • documents necessary for you to apply for the residence permit (if applicable).

If you are travelling to Malta by air, you will land at the Malta International Airport, a 24/7 airport that caters for millions of passengers every year.

Once you land at the Airport, you can get directly to your accommodation by public transport or by taxi. A number of public bus routes operate from the airport to several areas in Malta. Access the full list of routes on the Malta Public Transport website. Taxis are available at the arrivals lounge. Find more information about the rates taxi rates. Alternatively, you can pre-book airport transfers by a local and international service provider via websites or mobile applications.

We strongly recommend that prior to arrival, you make the necessary accommodation arrangements.
