The Minister for Foreign Affairs Carmelo Abela made around 67 international visits during the 2018.

Belgium made up the largest number of visits racking up to 19 times. Other visits included the United States, India, China and Japan.
* The tour does not include a trip to Palestine since the software used does not recognize Palestine as one of the states listed.
Each visit was counted as a separate trip. Some of these visits did include multiple dates, while others did not.
The countries outlined here refer to visits made by the Foreign Minister Carmelo Abela. The data was provided by the parliament in a table format.
