Official tourism agency for Malta
Malta is a delightful archipelago in the Mediterranean between Sicily and the North African coast renowned for its history and historic sites dating back to 4000 BC.
The Malta Tourism Authority (MTA) has a diverse role, but one which in essence is all about creating and fostering relationships. We are Malta's tourism industry regulator and motivator, its business partner, the country's brand promoter, and are here to form, maintain and manage meaningful partnerships with all tourism stakeholders.
Primarily, this means talking to visitors to the Maltese Islands, but we work closely alongside our private sector partners. More importantly, we help strengthen the industry's human resources, ensure the highest standards and quality of our tourism product, and foster relations with local and international media.
The Authority was formally set up by the Malta Travel and Tourism Service Act (1999). This legislation clearly defines our role - extending it beyond that of international marketing to include a domestic, motivating, directional, coordinating and regulatory role.
The Act strengthens the public and private partnership in tourism through greater and more direct participation by the private sector in national planning and development of the industry.
Our role is:
- to promote and advance Malta as a tourism destination;
- to advise Government on tourism operations and to issue licenses under the Act;
- to contribute toward the improvement of the level of human resources in the tourism industry; and
- to advise government on the planning and development of the tourism industry as well as on the infrastructure supporting the industry.
We are here to assist and advise on any tourism-related issues and to undertake activities and projects to fulfill our role.
