One-stop-shop application for third country nationals

The Employment and Training
Corporation (ETC) and Identity Malta wish to announce the establishment of a
one-stop-shop application service for the majority of Third-Country Nationals
(TCNs) wishing to reside in Malta for the purpose of work.  This service will commence on the 21st July 2014.

A single simplified
procedure, for TCNs, excluding those who fall within the categories listed
below, will require the submission by the individual of only one application to
the Department for Citizenship and Expatriate Affairs at Evans Building, St
Elmo Place, Valletta.

This means that employers
do not need to submit any applications for their prospective TCN
employees.  Applications need to be
submitted by the prospective employees themselves. However, employers must previously
endorse the application.

 

Does
this procedure apply to all TCNs?

The single application
procedure will be available to all TCNs other than those who fall within the
following categories:

TCNs who are awaiting or have been granted
temporary protection and beneficiaries of either international or national
protection.

TCNs who have long-term resident status.

TCNs who are self-employed workers.

TCNs who are students recognized under the
Students Regulations (Legal Notice 29 of 2008).

TCNs working in Malta for up to 6 months only.

TCNs working in Malta on the basis of a visa.

Posted TCN workers and intra-corporate
transferees.

The above will continue to
require the two separate procedures at ETC and Citizenship, as per current
regulations.

 

Further
information?

Procedures applicable to
individual cases are available on www.mhas.gov.mt (‘MHAS
Services' – ‘Residence') or by contacting the Department for Citizenship and
Expatriate Affairs on 2590 4800 or by email on .
