A Memorandum of Understanding to implement the Heritage Malta Senior Passport, has been signed by Heritage Malta and the Local Councils’ Association.
Heritage Malta said that all senior citizens are invited to call in person with their identity card at their Local Councils to apply for Heritage Malta’s Senior Passport.
It added that, “the Local Council staff will enrol them in the Senior Passport system, and the passport together with an information leaflet will be received by post within 10 working days.”
Heritage Malta explained that with this passport, a senior citizen will have free and unlimited access to all Heritage Malta’s attractions in Gozo and Malta (with the exception of the Closed Sites and the Hal Saflieni Hypogeum).
Heritage Malta’s Senior Passport holders can enjoy free and unlimited visits to 27 sites which include prehistoric temples and caves, historic houses and prisons, fortresses and palaces, and a selection of museums relating to nature, archaeology, maritime, war, and art.
Each senior citizen may also choose to be accompanied by two youths during these visits who will also be entitled to free access.
On each visit to any of Heritage Malta’s attractions, the Senior Passport holder has to ensure that the passport is stamped. With every 8 stamps collected, a reward will be given to the holder by Heritage Malta, to a total of 3 rewards.
