An aircraft whose owner is established in the European Union and is intended for commercial use may be imported through Malta for VAT purposes and thus enabling the aircraft to be in free circulation within the European Union.

This procedure is a full importation procedure and requires the aircraft to be physically present in Malta to undergo the necessary VAT and customs procedures. Most of the paperwork can be processed before the arrival of the aircraft to Malta therefore ensuring minimal turnaround time.
