Siesta and Opening Hours in Malta

The term ‘siesta’ originates from Latin (“sexta hora”, the sixth hour of the day; the twelfth hour, according to modern time counting). It describes the Spanish lunch break, which involves eating and resting in a preferably cool place for several hours. In other South European countries, too, business activities are conducted preferably in the morning or evening hours.

The business hours in Malta vary, depending on the season. The winter half-year starts on 1 October and ends on 14 June; the summer half-year starts on 15 June and ends on 30 September.

Incidentally, during the summertime, every town has its own village fair.

Business hours:
Shops: From 7 am until 12.30 pm and 4 pm until 7 pm.

Banks:
During winter, Monday to Friday from 8.30 am until 12.45 pm, as well as Tuesdays and Fridays from 2.30 pm until 4 pm, and Saturdays from 8.30 am until 12 pm. During summer, Monday to Friday from 8.30 am until 12.45 pm as well as Fridays from 2.30 pm until 4 pm and Saturdays from 8 am until 2.30 pm. At the airport of Luqa, there is a 24-hour bank counter, closed only on 25.12 and 01.01.
