The European Asylum Support Office moves to new premises

Today, the European Asylum Support Office (EASO) has moved into its new premises located in Valletta's Grand Harbour, Malta.

EASO was established with the aim of enhancing practical cooperation on asylum matters and helping Member States fulfil their European and international obligations to give protection to people in need. EASO also provides support to Member States whose asylum and reception systems are under particular pressure.

EASO has been operational for a little more than one year.

The total office area is of approximately 3,700 square metres, distributed on four floors, which can house EASO’s permanent staff and visiting officials. The building also features a number of conference and training rooms that are required to enable EASO to carry out its functions.

From now on EASO can be contacted at the following address:

European Asylum Support Office
MTC Block A, Winemakers Wharf,
Grand Harbour Valletta, MRS 1917, Malta
Tel: 00356 22487500
