The buses that London sold to Malta are unfortunately, no longer in Malta. All 80 Mercedes buses have been exported to Sudan after they caused congestion, caught fire and were generally disliked, it seems. Indeed, the article notes, in addition to the fires: In offering the buses for sale, Transport Malta had laid down that they cannot be returned to ...

Malta is a place with a lot of places of historic and archeological values. It hosts the oldest free standing buildings in the world (Older than the pyramids!). These are definitely worth a visit. The countryside is scattered with pre-historic remains. There are several Roman remains as well, like the Roman Villa in Rabat (Domus Romana) Other places ...

To bring this question to an answered state, I have a good friend in Malta who lives in Valletta and has a vacation flat in Birzebbugia. I put the question to her exactly as you asked it. Presumably by 'city' and 'harbour' you mean Valletta. You cannot rely upon walking through the city to find vacant rooms. You may luck out or may not, but in Valletta ...

I visited Malta nearly thirty years ago so this might be out of date. Malta isn't a large island, and you aren't going to find exciting sightseeing to keep you busy for two weeks. If you have a car, everywhere is a day trip from everywhere else. The Wikitravel page will give more details. Most of the places to see are in Valletta, with Mdina being ...

Having more than one Schengen visa is not allowed, and extending one is impossible. Cancelling it should not be hard but bureaucracy of the embassies/consulates are a pain in the ass sometimes. The only way to get out of this is luck, for example if the passport was accidentally clipped, or accidentally some water was spilled on it, the passport will be ...

Difficult to know if you will get a visa. Your position is less than ideal but we can't predict exactly what will happen. Regarding the supporting documents, you need to establish three things: What the purpose of the trip is (that's what the letter of invitation is for) That you have sufficient “means of subsistence” for your stay and to return to your ...

You can visit Schengen following the expiry of a residence permit. The Schengen clock does not tick when you have a residence permit. It starts ticking when the permit expires (and at that point your 90 days will begin). I wonder whether days before a residence permit are ever added to those after to count towards 90 total? it's theoretical because a ...

Here is a topic on some forum about buying pre-paid on Malta. You can buy sim card by vodafone or by GO mobile. It costs about 10 EUR. They said that Go Mobile has even shop at the airport, so it shouldn't be a problem.

There are 3 main mobile providers in Malta. Melita Vodafone GO You simply go to any of their store and ask for it. GO have a shop at the airport, but all of them have shops littered around malta or sub-agents. Vodafone have just introduced a 4G (LTE) network, so if you're interested in the fastest internet I think that would be the best. You can get ...

You'll need to make an appointment for a personal appearance at the Embassy of Malta (call 020 7292 4821). Malta is a Schengen signatory and operates within that framework for tourists and business visitors. The items you listed will be part of your evidence: air tickets in and out, bank account details. If you are being hosted by a convent, they should ...
