British High Commissioner to Malta
We maintain and develop relations between the UK and Malta. The British High Commission in Malta provides services to British nationals living in and visiting Malta.
Our work covers a range of issues including irregular migration and combating terrorism or organised criminality.
We help to build the UK’s prosperity, for example by working to deepen business links between the UK and Malta, and working with Malta at EU level to drive growth, increase competitiveness and create jobs.
We offer consular support to British nationals travelling to Malta and those British nationals resident in Malta. We deliver high quality, modern and cost effective consular services, targeting our assistance to those who need it most.

Other consular services
Register a same-sex marriage
We can register a same-sex marriage for British nationals. For information on getting married in Malta see getting married abroad.
Convert a civil partnership into marriage
We can convert an existing civil partnership into marriage.
You do not need to have formed your civil partnership in Malta, but you must have been living here for 28 days.
We can only convert UK Civil Partnerships where at least one of the parties is a UK national, (those registered in England and Wales or Scotland or at a British Consulate or armed forces base), not foreign equivalents. We cannot convert a Civil Partnership registered in Northern Ireland under any circumstances. Please note that the marriage will not necessarily be recognized by the Maltese authorities.
Notarial and documentary services
We cannot offer notarial services as Malta is a Commonwealth country. Persons requiring notarial work, including those requiring a certified copy of a British passport, or the legalisation of documents, should contact a local notary. In the case of legalising documents, the Legalisation Office in the UK can also be contacted.
We charge fees for some of our services. See the full list of consular fees in Malta.
