A helpline for people in Malta with questions about the effects and consequences of Brexit will be activated on Monday 28th January.
For local callers, this helpline will be administered on the servizz.gov platform via freephone number 153.
A helpline for Maltese citizens residing in the United Kingdom will also be launched on Monday.
This will be administered by Malta’s High Commission, based at Malta House in London. The numbers are 020 7292 4800, which will be open during office hours, and 078 3650 3990 for after-office hours.
During a press conference on Wednesday, Dr Muscat pledged Malta’s commitment to making British nationals residing on the islands continue to feel welcome, even after Brexit.
Around 13,000 UK nationals live in Malta, 5,000 of whom are active in the labour market.
On the other hand, there are around three generations of Maltese living in the United Kingdom today, amounting to more than 70,000. First-generation Maltese in Britain amount to around 30,000, according to the Maltese High Commission in London.
The Government has released a fact sheet with further details on Brexit here.
