Business or Invited Guest Visa
For a stay of up to 90 days, US citizens do not need a visa for tourist or business travel to this country, but a valid US Passport is required.
An extension must be applied for prior to the end of the 90 day period or expiration of original visa while in Malta.
Any US citizen who wishes to travel to Malta for any purpose other than tourism or business negotiations (e.g. work, study, adoption, immigration, or stays longer than stipulated in the entry requirements) should contact our office.
Regarding The Schengen Area
Travelers to Europe on business or tourism purposes may receive a visa for a short stay of one to ninety days, valid for all of the Schengen area countries. A Schengen visa issued by an embassy or consulate allows the holder to travel freely to all of these countries.
If you wish to visit only one Schengen country, you must apply through the embassy or consulate of that particular country.
If you wish to visit several Schengen countries, you must apply for a visa through the embassy or consulate of the country which is your main destination.
If you wish to visit several countries but do not have a main destination, you should apply for a visa at the embassy or consulate of the country which is your first point of entry.
If you do not need a visa for the Schengen country which is your main destination or first point of entry, please note that you may require a visa for other Schengen countries you wish to visit. You should then apply through the embassy or consulate of the first country which does require a visa.
