The aircraft may be registered as a commercial plane or for private purposes. For an aircraft to be registered it has to be owned by one or more of the following persons:

(a) The Government of Malta;
(b) Nationals of any European Economic Area;
(c) Undertakings formed in accordance with the law of an European Economic Area State and having their registered office, central administration or principal place of business within the European Economic Area;
(d) In the case of aircraft to be used for the purpose other than public transport or aerial work, persons in favour of whom a permit of residence has been issued.

The registration process of aircraft in Malta, is quite simple and straightforward. Only a few documents are required in order to start the process. These include the following:

(i) Official Application Form;
(ii) Bill of Sale;
(iii) If the aircraft is leased, then the lease agreement has to accompany the other documents;
(iv) If the aircraft was registered under a different jurisdiction then a de-registration certificate is also required;
(v) If there are any mortgages, these have to be registered as well.
