Expatriates Unit Change of Designation or Employer – Change of Employer

Expatriates Unit

A Change of Employer application may be submitted by the new employer, prior to the non-EU National terminating previous employment. The process follows the same  procedure through the Expatriates Online Portal.


If the third-country national is already terminated from the previous employment, should an application by a new employer be submitted within a 10-day period it may be considered for processing, even though the migration status of the third-country national is considered irregular as per the Immigration Act (Cap 217). It is to be emphasized that the 10-day period is a grace period and does not emanate from any legislation.


If the third-country national has been terminated for longer than 10 days, any application should be submitted following the eligibility and legality criteria as delineated in Subsidiary Legislation 217.17 and as summarised here.


Applicable fee: €300
