A visa application centre opened in Male’ City for the convenience of Malta visa applicants in the Maldives on Thursday.

The centre was opened by the High Commission of Malta in India, and VFS Global, the world's largest visa outsourcing and technology services specialist for governments and diplomatic missions worldwide and has been a trusted partner for the Government of the Republic of Malta for visa processing services since 2008.

Malta High Commissioner to India Reuben Gauci and VFS Global Senior General Manager – Schengen Operations (New Delhi) Naveen Nara inaugurated the centre located at H. Beach Tower, First Floor, Boduthakurufaanu Magu.

As per VSF, the new spacious Malta Visa Application Centre is equipped with modern amenities and services that will offer applicants a more comfortable and relaxed visa application submission experience. Applicants can submit applications for all Malta visa categories by either booking a prior appointment through the VFS Global website or just visiting the centre with the required documents as per the checklist.

VSF offers visa services on behalf of client governments across 38 countries through an extensive network of 101 visa application centres at present. However, their role in the visa application process is limited to front-end administrative tasks only, which include collecting visa application forms, required documentation as per the checklist, and enrolling biometrics, if applicable. VFS has no role in the decision-making process of granting or refusing a visa.
