Opening a Bank Account

Online since: 09. April 2013

To open a bank account, you need an ID card or a passport, as well as proof of a valid address, which does not have to be in Malta. A citizen of any country can open a bank account in Malta. However, the original identification documents have to be presented at the bank, as opposed to copies. Additionally, the Maltese banks require a bank reference from your home bank. To facilitate this, you will have to give permission to the Maltese banks to request it.

Note for Non-EU citizens: You also have to fill in a tax form.

Our tip: If you already carry a Maltese ID card, it is sufficient proof of identification. You won’t need to show the ID card from your home country or your passport, or prove that you have a valid address in Malta. (Maltese ID cards for foreigners)
For normal activities in Malta, we recommend you open a bank account (debit account) with the HSBC or BOV Bank.

You can also open a savings account.

Banks in Malta

The banks with the highest representation by far are HSBC and BOV (Bank of Valletta). Branches of both banks can be found in every town in Malta. These banks also offer ATMs to their clients. To open a debit account, you would normally go to one of these two banks.

All licensed banks in Malta (25 as of June 2012). From April 2005 to June 2012, seven new bank institutes opened and one shut down. Malta is an attractive location for banks:
