The Maltese passport is a European Union passport that is issued to Maltese citizens. Every Maltese citizen is also a citizen of the European Union. The passport, along with the national identity card allows for free rights of movement and residence in any of the states of the European Union and European Economic Area.

According to the 2014 Visa Restricitions Index, Maltese citizens can visit 166 countries without a visa or with a visa granted on arrival. Maltese citizens can live and work in any country within the EU as a result of the right of free movement and residence granted in Article 21 of the EU Treaty.[1]
