The Consul-on-the-Move programme was launched on 5 May 2016 and is providing certain consular services normally available at Malta’s Embassies and Consular posts, in different locations. Such services include the collection of biometric passport applications. This programme conforms to the Government’s vision to have governmental services closer to the citizen.

This programme is targeting 5 main areas which are Canada, USA, Italy, UK, Australia and New Zealand.

The Ministry for Foreign Affairs saw the need to work on such a programme after the introduction of biometric passports, for which the applicant has to personally visit an Embassy or a Consular Office for biometric data to be collected. This was resulting in an inconvenience for the Maltese citizens living abroad especially since there were added expenses for travel, lodging, and other related costs.  This project is being launched after an agreement was reached with the Passport Office in Malta to enable this ‘roaming service’ to take off.  

For certain services being provided, an additional administrative fee will apply.  The additional administrative charge for passport applications is €100 for each application over and above other related fees.

All consular services currently available at Malta’s Embassies and Consular Offices continue to remain available.    

An indication of visits for 2017 is already available.  The list of scheduled visits is indicated below.   Other locations may be considered, depending on the need.

Note that service is available by appointment only. For further information and appointments, please contact your respective location focal point as indicated below.​

It is highly recommended that closer to the scheduled date/s of the visits, one consult the relevant Mission/s coordinating the visits to ensure that there are no changes in dates and venues.
