I will be staying for 2months in the USA, do I require a visa since I am a citizen of Malta, which is part of the European Union?

  • Being part of EU is completely irrelevant in case of US visa.

From usembassy.gov:

A. Effective December 30, 2008, Maltese citizens are eligible to travel to the U.S. without a visa under the Visa Waiver Program if the following conditions are met:

  • The visit is less than 90 days
  • The visit is for tourism or business
  • The traveler holds a valid biometric passport
  • The traveler registers for and receives an approved travel authorization, or ESTA (Electronic System for Travel Authorization), by entering their travel details at https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov at least 72 hours prior to commencing travel
  • The traveler has a valid return ticket
  • The traveler has no prior legal convictions.
  • Thanks really helpful! Do you also know where I can check regarding license. A friend of mine told me normal license was accepted some years ago, but I want to check just in case as Im thinking maybe of hiring a car for couple of days.

    "The visit is for tourism or business" What else?

    Visits for terrorism are not allowed without a visa! Seriously, I think the last two options left are diplomatic and medical.

    @feklee you cannot work. By business they mean to go to conferences or something like that
