Expatriates Unit Single Permit – Renewal of Single Permit

Expatriates Unit

The single permit is generally renewed annually, and the administrative process follows the same single permit procedure.


Renewal of applications may only be submitted while their current permit is still valid. If a renewal application is not submitted before the expiry date of the previous, the third-country national may fall in an irregular migration status and would be in violation of the Immigration Act (Cap. 217) of the Laws of Malta.


To allow sufficient processing time, the renewal process should start 90 days from the date of expiry. If the third-country national renewing the permit requires a health screening, as specified by the Maltese Public Health Authorities, application can only be submitted 30 days prior to expiry.


The updated version of Health screening requirements for single permit renewals may be found on: https://hpdp.gov.mt/idcu/health_screening_for_renewal_of_work_permit.


Applicable fee: €300.
