APPLICATIONS FOR RENEWAL OF WORK PERMITS FOR THIRD COUNTRY NATIONALS
The Office of the Parliamentary Secretary for Reforms, Citizenship and Simplification of Administrative Procedures has informed the Malta Chamber that due to the backlog at the Health Unit special arrangements have been made in respect of third country nationals applying for the renewal of work permits.
The Immigration Police have given Identity Malta a special authority to grant an extension until the end of October so that third country nationals applying for the renewal of work permits are not considered to be in Malta illegally. As from 1st November, Identity Malta will only accept the full health authorisations from the IDCU and overstaying applicants will be reported to the Immigration Authorities.
Members are reminded that the Identity Malta accepts applications for renewals 3 months before the expiry date.
