Bars and clubs have had to endure the longest closures among Malta’s businesses, with their second round of closure orders lasting from end-October until, at least, 11th April.

As a result, the Government announced special monetary assistance to businesses in this sector.

Category A, referring to commercial bars, will receive €3,820 to cover the end-October to mid-April closure. Bars forming part of a club, also known as Category B, will receive a payment of €2,490 and non-political clubs, Category C, will receive €1,660.

Bar and club owners who have already applied to the scheme need not reapply, while those who haven’t yet are urged to do so.

A €1,000 one-time payment has also been granted to those restaurant and snack bar owners who apply, in response to the banning of in-house dining until 11th April. Such establishments are only permitted to serve take-out and deliveries during this time.
