With its eclectic mix of old world charm and international aspirations, Malta is an attractive alternative to those who have grown tired of big-city life.
In transposing the provisions of the European Union Council Directive 2004/38 of the European Parliament and the Council of 29th April 2004 Maltese legislation has provided for the implementation and administration of EU and EEA nationals’ rights to exercise their right to free movement.
This means that EU/EEA nationals as well as Swiss Nationals enjoy the right to free movement and work in the EU/EEA territory and Switzerland; this right also extends to their family members, including those who are not nationals of either of the aforementioned territories, so that either of these individuals can:
- accept offers of work and seek employment in Malta;
- work (whether an employee or self-employed); &
- set up a business.
It is important to note that while EU/EEA/Swiss nationals have the right to reside and work in Malta, they are still required to regularise their presence in Malta. If they will be basing their residency on employment such nationals are also obliged to register their employment status with Jobplus.
