Travel Visa to Malta

Post by THO » Tue Jan 26, 2021 10:45 am

Hi,

Does anyone know if my Vietnamese wife, who is in the UK on a spouse visa, would require a visa to travel to Malta, since it is a British overseas territory?

Can't seem to find the right information, so if you know where I can check. The .gov information just bangs on about Covid and travel from Schengen regions, but not people who have a visa to live in UK but who are not British.

Thanks,

THO.

She needs a visa to visit Malta. Her spouse visa is only relevant to the UK. She needs a Schengen visa.

Malta is a commonwealth country, not a British overseas territory

Would she still need a visa for Gibralta?

Currently there are negotiations ongoing between Spain, the EU and Gibraltar about keeping the Spanish/Gibraltar border open post-Brexit. There are suggestions that Gibraltar will effectively join the Schengen Zone and that the Gibraltar air border (Immigration Officers at the airport) will not be British, but FrontEx (EU Frontier) staff.
So the entire situation is fluid. It is unclear whether British citizens without Gibraltarian status will be able to visit Gibraltar without a visa, let alone other visa holders in the UK.
