To get your Maltese ID card visit the Evans Building at St. Elmo Place in Valletta, across from Fort St. Elmo, on the perimeter road of the city.

  1. Your passport. Your passport must contain a residential or working permit sticker that will not expire for at least three months after the day you apply for an ID card.
  2. Your residence or working permit.
  3. An application form. You can download applications online from Malta’s Electoral Commission web site.
  4. A passport sized photo for your application form.
