Importing or renting a car

If you want to import your car to Malta, there are some points that you will have to observe. Renting a car is not very expensive and offices of international rental companies are present in Malta.

If you bring your car to Malta, you may use it for seven months within a 12-month period. After that you will have to register it with the Maltese authorities.

For registration, you need the following documentation:

  • Original logbook
  • Notice of arrival (proof of import)
  • Signed Invoice (proof of purchase)
  • Photocopy of your personal identification
  • Two forms, filled in and signed (form 1 , form 2 )

Renting a car

To rent a car in Malta you have to be at least 18 years old and you must have held a driving licence for at least one year. Car rental is quite cheap in Malta and a great way to have some freedom and visit the more remote areas of the islands. Cars are available from international rental companies such as Avis, Hertz, Sixt and Europcar. They have offices at the airport, in Valletta and on Gozo.
