Malta and the United States established full diplomatic relations upon Malta's independence in 1964; overall relations are positive. The United States has been sympathetic to Malta's campaign to attract private investment, and some firms operating in Malta have U.S. ownership or investment. These include major hotels, manufacturing and repair facilities, and some offices servicing local and regional operations.


Malta is on the list of the Visa Waiver Program of the US. Maltese nationals holding a Maltese biometric passport do not require a visa for entry into the United States.


The U.S. embassy in Malta is in the village of Ta' Qali which was constructed recently to replace the former U.S. embassy which was in Floriana
