Third-country nationals who receive a job offer from a company registered and operating in Malta are eligible to apply for a Single Permit that enables them to be employed in the job specified on the application. The employer must also be registered with Jobsplus.
Third-country nationals cannot directly submit an application for a single permit, but their prospective employer needs to apply online on their behalf.
The Expatriates Unit will only proceed with applications where at the time of application the third-country national is, either still in the country of residence (Still Abroad), or holds legal status in Malta, by means of a valid residence permit or Visa.
Should it ensue, during the processing of the application, that the third-country national is not eligible as per the criteria of Subsidiary Legislation 217.17, the application will be refused with no recourse to refund.
Persons who are residing in the Schengen area, including Malta, on the basis of being beneficiaries of a protection certificate (refugee, subsidiary, and temporary humanitarian protection), including those awaiting a decision on their immigration status, are not eligible to apply for a Single Permit.
