The Employment of Foreign Workers in Malta

Information Session 16/03/2016 14:00 - 16/03/2016 17:00


A current feature of the Labour market is an ever increasing demand for Foreigners working in Malta, which at last count has exceeded 27 thousand persons. The demand for such personnel cuts across many sectors of the economy, and the Malta Employers' Association is concerned about difficulties which many companies are facing in engaging foreign employees. These difficulties mostly centre around the timely issuing of visas to enable non-Maltese to work legitimately in companies operating in Malta.

In response to an increasing number of queries from employers about the procedures and delays in the granting of permits for foreign employees, the Malta Employers’ Association organised an information session on the 16th March 2016 at the Mediterranean Conference Centre.

The seminar was well attended and was addressed by Mr. Joseph Farrugia (MEA Director General), Mr. Ryan Spagnol (Senior Manager, Citizen and Expatriate Affairs, Identity Malta Agency); Mr. Mario Xuereb (Head of Division – Employment Services, Employment and Training Corporation); Mr. Neil Harrison (Advisor on VISA related Matters, Identity Malta Agency); and Inspector Mario Haber, (Immigration Section, Police Commission).
