Popular Mediterranean country stopped issuing Schengen to Russians with one type of passport

Russians with old passports in their hands stopped issuing Schengen visas to a small but popular Mediterranean beach country. It's about Malta. The corresponding warning was issued by the VFS Global visa center on its official website.

According to the message, this is a temporary measure and applies only to holders of five-year passports. The reasons for the decision were not specified. In return, the Consulate of Malta, where Russians go for beach and educational tourism, offers an alternative: “Holders of such passports, if a decision is made to issue a visa, will be able to obtain a national short-term visa (LTV), valid for visiting only the territory of Malta. The application conditions and passport requirements for a D visa remain unchanged.” Recall that a short-term visa entitles Russians to stay in this small EU country for up to 90 days in half a year.

Visa problems for domestic tourists have also appeared in Germany. Compatriots may lose the opportunity to obtain visas to Germany as early as June this year due to the closure of the visa departments of the German Embassy and Consulate General in Moscow and St. Petersburg. If the diplomatic divisions really stop working, then residents of Moscow and the Northern capital will have to travel hundreds of kilometers to obtain visas (read the details here).
