Global College Malta: Relocating to Malta

Published Lynne Farrugia on Monday, June 11, 2018

Whether it’s for a few weeks or a couple of months, visiting Malta is always a great idea. The island is relatively small, and tourists get to see the whole country in a matter of days. Soon enough you can also become part of the society of people in the town or village where you live.

These are some of the beautiful aspects of living in Malta and which will make your students’ decision to come and work or study here, easier. However, we also know that once the excitement of moving is no longer a novelty, the more fundamental questions arise. So, the purpose of our article today is to help you and your students understand what the requirements are in order to be able to have a smooth transition to Malta.

The most important document to have is a visa, for non-European students and a residential permit for anyone wanting to reside in Malta. Starting with the visa, these are the steps students will need to follow so as to apply for one:

Step 1:  A scanned copy of the passport is initially required for a preliminary check with Visa Malta.

Step 2: As soon as Visa Malta approves the preliminary check of the student, the student / agent needs to send the application form (which can be downloaded from the Global College Malta website) together with schooling and /or University certificates.

Step 3 On approval from Global College Malta, an Offer Letter will be sent to the student / agent to be signed together with the Invoice.

Step 4 On acceptance of the Offer Letter together with payment, a Visa Letter together with receipts will be issued by Global College Malta covering the period of study.

It would also be helpful to have a scanned copy of the following documents at hand for when the student is asked to submit them:

- Full copy of passport 

- Letting Agreement

- Student Contract

- Receipt of Payment

- Academic Certificates 

- Letter confirming you are a student

- Current Bank Statement

- Health Insurance

Once the student arrives and settles in Malta, he / she will need to apply for their Maltese Residential Permit.

As always, here at Global College Malta our Student Support Officer is available to guide both students and agents through these processes. You can also send us any questions you may have on enquiries@gcmalta.com or call on +356 2180 1252. Over and above these methods of communication, we would like to invite you to join our GoTo Meetings which will be held on the 27th June and 5th September and can be a great opportunity for you to ask any questions and get immediate answers from our members of staff.
