The MTA is now offering services from Mrieħel
Increased presence thanks to a Business First office
The Malta Tourism Authority has increased its presence by starting to operate from the Business First offices in Mrieħel.
Business First, a Malta Enterprise service, is a one-stop-shop for a number of different entities, including but not limited to the Planning Authority, the Health Department, Identity Malta, JobsPlus, the VAT department as well as the MTA. Having a number of entities in one place saves people from having to travel from one place to another.
The MTA felt it had to be part of this project and as a result, whoever wishes to apply for a tourism operating license, can now do so from its Business First office. The applicant will be able to gather all the documents required by the MTA, such as the planning permits or the health and safety certificate, from the same location.
The MTA executive chairman, Dr Gavin Gulia, visited the Business First office and said that he is certain that this one-stopshop will be appreciated by all those that need to make use of it.
The applications which can be processed through the MTA’s Business First branch are:
• Notification of a Change of Licensee for
a Tourism Operation
• Application for a Bar Substitute • Application for the Registration of an
Operator in a Tourism Establishment • Application for a Holiday Furnished
• Application for a House on Long Term
• Application for the Playing of Amplified
Music in Tourism Establishments • Application for a Host Family licence • Application for a Travel Operator or

The opening hours are: Monday to Friday 8am to 12.30pm. Winter Hours (September to June) − Mon, Tues, Thurs 8am – 4pm; Wed 8am – 7pm and Fri 8am − 1pm.
