Background Information

Governing Law: Official public holidays in Malta are regulated by the National Holidays and other Public Holidays Act of 1975 (ACT XXX of 1975, as amended by Legal Notices: 38 and 59 of 1977; Act X of 1980; Legal Notices 8 and 40 of 1987; and Acts VIII of 1989 and II of 2005).  National Day(s): Malta has not one, but 5 national days; March 31, June 7, September 8, September 21, and December 13.  Weekend Public Holidays: In Malta, since January 1st, 2005, public holidays that fall on a weekend are not officially moved to the following Monday, but in the past it was a common practice to give days in lieu on the following Monday for any public holidays occurring on a Saturday or Sunday. A recent law has put an official end to that practice, but there have been vocal protests so that business travelers are advised to avoid trying to organize any business on the Monday following a week-end holiday.  Sette Giugno is the Commemoration of the 1919 Uprising.  Post-Electtion Mondays: On the Monday after a general election, business is likely to come to a standstill and school transportation is traditionally not available.  Malta International Codes MT and MLT (2 and 3-letter ISO3166 codes) and .mt (ICANN national top-level internet domain). Other Sources of Information The following specialized websites are also a good source of Malta information and news: Central Bank of Malta (Malta central bank), ASI Hot Spots (security-related world events: terrorist threats, political strife, strikes, criminal activity, aviation incidents and health outbreaks), CIA World Factbook (Malta maps, demographics and economic statistics), the IFES (information covering upcoming elections, referenda, electoral structures and voter participation in Malta), and Wikipedia (includes Malta commemorative dates that are not necessarily public holidays).
