REGULATIONS

All divers will have to complete a registration form on arrival at the dive centre. This will include details of your diving qualification and a copy of your medical declaration (see below). This is a necessary procedure to guarantee your safety and enjoyment during your diving activities.

Here is an overview of the Maltese diving regulations, their aim is to ensure that all divers encounter the most pleasurable diving experience with the best safety conditions.

Medicals
Some divers will find that they are no longer obliged to be examined by a doctor depending on their medical history. A medical questionnaire will screen and highlight those people who must seek further medical advice and / or examination prior to diving.

Certain conditions will always be incompatible with diving and if you know you suffer from impaired health, you should make further enquiries before booking a diving holiday.

Minimum Age
There are no restrictions on age. The decision on minimum age will be at the discretion of the Instructor or as stipulated by the training agency for those undertaking a diving qualification. Written parental / guardian consent will be required for all divers under age 18.

Unaccompanied Divers
If you intend to dive without a guide from the dive centre leading the dive (organized or independent diving), you will need to be a PADI Advanced Open Water, CMAS 2 Star Diver or equivalent, otherwise you will have to be accompanied in the water by an Instructor. You are no longer obliged to obtain a Local Diving Permit.
