Jobsplus processes all applications for the issue of Employment Licences (previously referred to as work permits) for foreign nationals looking for employment in Malta, with the exception of Third Country Nationals applying under the Single Permit Directive.  These licences are to be applied for by the prospective employee.

The following Employment Licences Guidelines are intended to act as a guide to applicants and to foreign non-EU nationals (with the exception of EU Member States undergoing a transitional phase) wishing to work in Malta. These guidelines are subject to regular updates, thus, it is important for applicants to comply with the guidelines applicable at the date of application.

Third Country Nationals wishing to apply for a Work/ Residence Permit, and who are eligible for a Single Permit Application, are to submit their applications at the Department for Citizenship and Expatriate Affairs, Evans Building, St. Elmo Place, Valletta. For further information regarding eligibility and documentation required, visit the Department’s website or contact the Department for Citizenship and Expatriate Affairs on 25904800 or by email on citizenship@gov.mt

Third Country Nationals in possession of a Single Permit are eligible for guidance services offered by Jobsplus. For more information on these services click here

More information can also be accessed by downloading the Living and Working in Malta publication.
