Online Payments - Renewal of Registration of Small Ships

Transport Malta is offering a secure and easy way for boat owners to renew their Small Ship Registration online without having to go to the Small Ships register Office in Hal Lija.

As of June 2022, a new electronic application form service has been created for users with an e-ID who wish to renew their small ship registration online from the comfort of their home, including online payment. The e-form can be accessed by clicking here. This service will be replacing the old online system. 

Kindly note that the online application form allows applicants to pay via an online card payment once their application passes vetting and is approved by the Transport Malta SSR Office.
