Expat guide: Valletta, MaltaWe are proud to launch our new city guide for expatriates in Malta.

Malta is a small island nation located in the middle of the Mediterranean, 80 km/50 mi south of Sicily and 333 km/207 mi north of Libya. Comprised principally of the islands of Malta, Gozo, and Comino, the country covers just 316 km2 or 122 sq. mi. With a population of just over 400,000, this makes Malta one of the smallest and most densely populated countries in the world.

Valletta and its surroundings in the eastern region of Malta form the most densely populated area of Malta, and include the villages of Valletta, Sliema and St. Julian's. Although called Valletta, the capital city, our guide is also largely focused on those other villages praised by a very high concentration of expats who reside in these seaside villages.

While local and foreign businesses maintain offices in villages throughout the islands, a major concentration of offices and retail businesses can be found in Sliema and St. Julian's. IT firms are also commonly based in Sliema and St. Julian's, where a vibrant resident population of expats provides a consistently large and qualified pool of employees. Sliema & St. Julian's are home to numerous hotels, resorts, and English language schools. These are especially busy during the summer months, and are an important economic driver for the area.
