Malta’s Embassy in Libya opens visa application center in Misrata

The Embassy of Malta in Libya inaugurated on Monday a new visa application centre in Misrata, in partnership with VFS Global, the Embassy said in a statement.

The statement indicated that the Maltese Ambassador, Charles Saliba, delivered opening remarks highlighting the role played by the Embassy to facilitate commercial and social exchanges between Libya and Malta in order to build ever closer bilateral relations as well as shape a positive narrative regarding the situation in Libya. 

The statement cited Ambassador Saliba as recalling that just as Malta was the first European Union Member State to introduce direct flights between Malta and Libya, it was again taking the initiative as the first member of the Schengen area to open a visa application office in Misrata in order to facilitate the submission of visa applications for the communities in Misrata and neighboring cities. 

“Misrata is considered as a major hub for business activities, as well as a maritime hub with its port and Freezone area and air link with a newly built airport.” The Embassy said.

Meanwhile, the Consul of Malta, Jonathan Engerer, highlighted that since his arrival at the Embassy a year ago, the opening of this visa application centre was earmarked as a priority. 

The opening ceremony in Misrata was attended by representatives from the Libyan Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Libyan Consul in Malta, Mohammed Sherif, as well as prominent local stakeholders.
