Erasmus Student Network (ESN) Malta wants to express its solidarity and support with all those who are currently suffering because of COVID-19 and their families. As an association that has among its purposes the promotion of active citizenship, social inclusion, and health and well-being, we continually underline the importance of the guidelines and measures of the Maltese Health Authorities. 

Many of you have taken the brave decision to travel in the midst of a global pandemic, you have taken the decision to live in a completely new and different country for your own personal development. Studying abroad is never a smooth transition and we can only imagine the challenges that you are facing during this difficult period. 

For all new and returning international students, exchange students, and interns, ESN Malta is here for you. As Malta’s most active youth organisation, our volunteers and buddies will always be there to help and support you. Our international community is a big family, and you are part of it. We invite you to explore this COVID-19 section of our website, to familiarise yourself with the current Maltese rules, regulations, and restrictions. We encourage you to practice social distancing, avoid large gathering and practice good hygiene. For your safety, we have also created a set of guidelines which will govern the activity of ESN Malta during this difficult period, which will help us give you the best Erasmus experience possible while trying to contain the spread of the virus among the Maltese population. Malta is Europe's most densely populated country, and it is for this main reason that we must do all we can to prevent the transmission of this disease. 

We are sorry that we cannot show you all the beauties of our tiny island, or organise all the activities which we had planned, but nevertheless, we are still committed to making your time in Malta the best experience that you will ever live!

Much peace and love,
Team ESN Malta.
