Work permit applications for foreign workers to open in August under more favourable conditions

From the third of August, foreign workers can reapply for the single permit, which is both a work and residence permit. Parliamentary Secretary Alex Muscat said that due to the pandemic, foreign workers were not being allowed to come to Malta and will now be given nine-months instead of six-months to procure a visa and come to Malta.

From August 3, business owners who want foreign workers can apply online through the Identity Malta website. Agency’s Chief Executive, Anton Sevasta said that those who had already applied and who could not come to Malta due to pandemic-related restrictions, would be given a nine-month automatic extension to have sufficient time to obtain a visa and arrive in Malta.

Mr Sevasta said that Identity Malta would be sending letters to those whose permission to come to Malta had expired. He said the pending applications will be re-analyzed in the light of developments and the work situation and whoever is involved will be contacted in the coming days.

Parliamentary Secretary for Citizenship Alex Muscat said that despite the economic and social challenges posed by COVID-19, the authorities had received many requests from various business owners and contractors due to an urgent need for foreign workers.

“The remote gaming sector, construction, road construction, have kept going and don’t have enough workers and need to employ foreigners.”

Identity Malta will also be accepting applications from football clubs for professional football players provided they are in conformity with health regulations as stipulated in the relevant legal notices.

Mr Muscat said that the extension of the permit for nine months is being granted in the hope that Malta would continue to open the airport to more countries that are so far closed, including India.
