Environmental Contribution

The Maltese government has introduced an Environmental Contribution to be paid by all tourists aged 18 and over. This will apply for all new arrivals from 1st June 2016 onwards.

The cost of the Environmental Contribution is €0.50 per person per night staying on the Maltese Islands, applicable for all types of accommodation including hotels, guest houses, hostels, resorts and timeshares amongst others. This charge is capped at a maximum of €5 per person.

All revenue generated from this contribution will be put towards touristic areas and the local infrastructure. The aim is to improve the quality along the tourism chain, meaning the tourist should benefit from the subsequent investment.

Responsibility for collecting the contribution from guests and passing it on to Government will be vested with accommodation services providers, i.e. the licensee. Any person or entity that provides tourist accommodation on a commercial basis will be obliged to collect the contribution and pass it on to Government (Collection of the contribution will be taken on arrival at your booked accommodation.)
