The scheme is being managed by the Malta Tourism Authority – to cover the five-month period bars spent shut down due to the pandemic.
The scheme is split across three categories: commercial bars, bars that are housed within a club (kazin) and bars owned by clubs. Political party clubs have been excluded from the scheme.
- Commercial bars will receive a one-time payment of €2870;
- Those forming part of a club will receive €1860; and
- Bars owned by non-political clubs will receive €1260.
Owners must submit their applications between 1-15th March 2021, and applications will be processed within 2 weeks.
