Application For Student Visas

Malta Student Visa Documents checklist :Student visas are required for all students travelling to study in or visit Malta. Some nationalities (including EU nationals) only need a student visa for stays of more than three months.

When applying for a student visa, you should provide all the necessary information and documents as the Maltese Embassy will not consider half complete applications. The following list provides you with all the necessary documentation that you will need:

Your completed application form

Your up-to-date and valid passport/travel document.

Two identical colour passport photos that must be from the last six months and adhere to the Embassy’s photographic requirements.

Student Status Letter from your university faculty.

Proof of travel insurance to cover the duration of your visit. The insurance company will provide you with a certificate to include in your application

Proof of travel plans (flight, ferry or train bookings). The Maltese Embassy insists that you must have pre-booked your travel before you apply for your visa.

Proof of accommodation

Proof of financial means. You should have approximately €30 per day available. Bank statements, wage slips from the last 3 months or travellers cheques with the relevant amounts are necessary to prove you meet the financial requirements.

Schengen visas require an application fee. This charge can vary, so it is best to check with the Maltese Embassy to confirm the actual amount and the method of payment. This can be done through the Embassy website.

A self addressed special delivery envelope to allow the Embassy to post back your passport/documents when a decision has been made.

Photocopies of all the documents provided (you need to send both originals and photocopies).
