Aviation

The Aircraft Registration Act 2010 has contributed to the recognition of Malta as a competitive jurisdiction in the aviation sector, with a vigorous legislative framework which transposes the Cape Town Convention and the Aircraft Protocol. The Maltese national aircraft registry is renowned for its high standards in accordance with EU requirements and other international regulations.

As a matter of fact, Malta currently has over 300 aircraft registered with the Civil Aviation Department, and is seeking to have 400 registered aircrafts by the end of 2019. Furthermore, there are currently 35 companies which have their Air Operator Certificates issued by the Maltese authorities. With Malta being a neutral state having both economic and political stability as well as a professional English-speaking workforce, Malta is considered to be an efficient jurisdiction for aircraft registration. Moreover, the costs associated with company formation and aircraft registration are considered to be relatively low.

Malta Ship Registration

Ship registration under the Malta flag and the operation thereof is regulated by the Merchant Shipping Act. Different kinds of ships may be registered under Malta flag, as long as the ship is either owned by a duly incorporated company or entity (irrespective of its place of incorporation), or by a European citizen.

Malta is an attractive jurisdiction for vessel registration due to the absence of restrictions on the sale or mortgaging of Maltese registered vessels. Moreover, there are no restrictions on the nationality of the master, officers and crew of Maltese vessels, and no restrictions to the registration of vessels under construction. Moreover, Malta is a neutral state having both economic and political stability, as well as a professional English-speaking working force and it is considered as a cost-effective jurisdiction for both ship registration and company formation.

Crew Services

Malta has acceded to the IMO Convention STCW 1978.

Malta imposes no restrictions on the nationality of the master, officers and crew of Maltese vessels. Malta has also ratified the Maritime Labour Convention and crew members are subject to the provisions of the Merchant Shipping (Maritime Labour Convention) Rules.

With Malta being a neutral state having both economic and political stability, as well as having a professional English-speaking working force, it is considered as a cost-effective jurisdiction for vessel registration and company formation.

A private limited company is the most popular type of partnership in Malta. The limited liability company is, in fact, the only type of company allowed by the Companies Act.
