Entry visa information
Third country nationals (i.e. nationals of all other countries) need to be in possession of a valid Schengen visa for the whole duration of their stay or need to apply for a Schengen visa to come to Malta. Schengen visa applications must be filed at the diplomatic mission of the country which is the main destination of the visit. Therefore, applicants wishing to visit Malta as the main destination, or the country of first entry into the Schengen area, must file their applications at Malta’s diplomatic missions or its representations. If there is no embassy of Malta in the applicant’s country/region, Malta is represented either by the Austrian or Italian embassy.
Third country nationals who require a visa for Malta can opt for a student visa or a Schengen visa. The difference is that a standard student visa (non-Schengen) is valid for travel to Malta only and a Schengen visa is valid for travel within the whole Schengen zone (28 countries including 25 EU states). A standard student visa (non-Schengen) can be extended without the need to leave the country. The Schengen visa is not extendable at all.
Applicants need to provide the following documentation:
Requirements may vary from one embassy to another and therefore applicants are advised to check the exact requirements with the respective embassy where there plan to apply for their Schengen visa. In the case where an embassy requires original documents from Clubclass, these may be sent by courier at a charge of €60.
Visa requirements and regulations may change from time to time. For the most recent information, applicants are advised to visit the official website of the Malta Ministry of Foreign Affairs at http://www.foreign.gov.mt/default.aspx?MLEV=53&MDIS=523
Clubclass provides visa assistance to students at no charge. All the school documents needed to apply for the visa will be sent upon receipt of the full payment.
If an entry visa is not granted and the School is informed 8 days or more before the enrolment start date, a full refund, less the registration fee, bank charges and courier fees (if applicable), will be sent to the student. If the School is informed 7 days or less before the enrolment start date, a cancellation fee, equivalent to the cost of one week (course, accommodation, registration fee, airport transfers, etc) bank charges and courier fees (if applicable), will be charged. In both cases, evidence of visa refusal is to be sent to the School.
