The Merchant Shipping Directorate forms part of the Authority for Transport in Malta, which is the Authority responsible for land, sea and air transport. The Directorate is responsible not only for mercantile vessels but also for commercial and pleasure yachting.

Centrally headquartered on the water’s edge at Valletta Harbour, a most appropriate location for maritime business, the Merchant Shipping Directorate offers an efficient service combined with inimitable hospitality.
