Public Order

Malta is a very safe and secure country. Compared to other European countries, it ranks third out of 36 countries in terms of low crime rate. Nevertheless, no matter how safe it is, one should never let one's guard down.

Visitors are advised to be cautious especially in the city at night. Malta is a country where parties are common, and when students go to Malta for study abroad programs, they will have many opportunities to go to nightclubs to hang out with friends, so it is best to be vigilant to problems such as pickpocketing, snatch thieves and violent incidents.
