You can apply for an emergency travel document if you’re abroad and your passport has been lost or stolen, damaged or expired, and you can’t get a new or replacement passport in time to travel.

If the person needing the emergency travel document is under 16, a parent or guardian should apply on their behalf.

If you are due to travel in the next 24 hours, contact us as soon as possible.

If you are travelling in more than 3 weeks, check if you can get a new or replacement passport in time to travel.

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.

Consular fees

We charge fees for some of our services. See the full list of consular fees in Malta.
