The Mobility Guarantee Scheme forms part of Arts Council Malta’s support portfolio that invests in diverse artistic and cultural expression and in the development of Malta’s cultural and creative sectors. It addresses international opportunities, focusing specifically on facilitating the outgoing mobility of artistic and cultural productions outside the European Union.

Beneficiaries of Funding Schemes 2024 whose funded project or activity includes mobility of items that will leave the European Union on a temporary basis and will return to the European Union tale quale may require an ATA Carnet which can be obtained from the Malta Chamber of Commerce, Enterprise and Industry.

To apply for the ATA Carnet, beneficiaries are required to create an inventory list of items specifying the quantity, a full description of each item (serial numbers, models, make, etc.), the value of each item, the weight, and the origin. The items entered in the ATA Carnet may be professional equipment, goods for an international trade fair or exhibition, and commercial samples.

This scheme provides beneficiaries of Funding Schemes 2024 with a maximum amount of €30,000 that will support the security deposit that needs to be paid to the Malta Chamber of Commerce, Enterprise and Industry. The beneficiary will be required to observe the instructions provided by the Malta Chamber of Commerce, Enterprise and Industry with regard to the ATA Carnet. By requesting the security deposit, the beneficiary agrees to refund the amount to Arts Council Malta upon completion of the process or the completion of the funded project, whichever comes first.
