The Consul-on-the-Move Programme was launched on 5 May 2016, in accordance with the Passports Office within Identity Malta Agency, and conforms with the Government’s vision to have Governmental services closer to the citizens. It provides a number of Consular services (that are normally available at Maltese Embassies and Consulates) in different locations.

The need for this Programme was seen after the introduction of biometric passports, that led Maltese applicants living abroad to go physically to the nearest Maltese Embassy or Consulate in order to capture biometric data. This was resulting to an inconvenience, especially due to additional expenses including costs for travel and accommodation.

This Programme is currently focusing on Australia, Canada, the United States of America, the United Kingdom, and New Zealand. All Consular services currently available at the Maltese Embassies and Consulates continue to remain available.

For certain services provided, an additional administrative fee applies. In accordance with Legal Notice 221 of 2016, the administrative charge for passport applications is €100 for each application, whilst that for citizenship applications is €50 for each application, over and above other related fees.
