Malta new ECO (environment) tax for accommodation

 

From 1st June 2016, anyone staying in a school or hotel accommodation is required to pay the following tax, per person, per night:

 

€0.50c (50 cents) per night up to a maximum of €5.00
Please take a look at the chart below to help you understand more easily.

 

# nights pptotal € # nights pptotal €
1 night €0.50   6 nights €3.00
2 nights €1.00   7 nights €3.50
3 nights €1.50   8 nights €4.00
4 nights €2.00   9 nights €4.50
5 nights €2.50   10+ nights €5.00

 

All agents, schools and hotels are required to pay this tax to the government. Many agents will be contacting their old clients to pay this tax during July and August, even for clients who already finished their holiday in Malta.
Therefore we ask you to think well before you accept to pay this tax to your agent or hotel reception and only pay if:

 

1) the amount asked is according to the table above
2) your stay in Malta was after 1st June 2016
3) Even if you are staying many months, the maximum fee should be €5.00 (around 600 yen)
