Visas & Work Permits

Busuttil & Millo Advocates have worked in the field of assisting clients with attaining visas to land in Malta as well as obtaining work permits in Malta over the last thirty-five years. We have long standing relationships with a number of agencies in providing such services and we are proud to state that we have provided our clients with sterling services in a reasonable time and at reasonable prices. 

Our team at Busuttil & Millo Advocates provides professional service to assist clients who are interested in relocating to Malta either as an individual or as a company seeking to relocate its employees. Our motto has always been ‘We are here for you’ and so our goal is to make this transition as smooth as possible. Our team is experienced in working in this specialized area and we offer an array of services which include Schengen Visas, Study Visas, Tourist Visas, Work Visas and Work Permits.

Citizens of EU/EFTA countries and their close family members and even if the latter are not EU or EFTA (Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland) citizens, do not require any employment licences to work in Malta. However, all other nationals, coming from non-EU and non-EFTA countries, and who are termed as Third Country Nationals must submit a single permit application to be able to work and reside in Malta. The Single Permit Application, if it is successful, which is commonly referred to as the employment license gives the applicant the authorization to both live and work in Malta.

The single Permit Application, amongst other documents would need to include the following documents:

  • a copy of a valid employment contract
  • a private medical insurance cover for 12 months
  • a covering letter and a position description signed by the employer
  • a covering letter from the prospective employer stating the reason for the employment
  • a signed CV accompanied by references showing work experience covering at least a 3-year period

The Single Permit Application is valid for one year for a price of €280.50 which can be renewed afterwards. Each single application residence card is tied to the employer whose contract of employment was included in the application process. Therefore, the card would cease to be valid, if the applicant no longer remains in employment with that particular employer.
