Get in Touch with NAME

‘The Key Employee Initiative’ (KEI) has been introduced with the aim of facilitating the issuing of single permits, to highly-specialised third-country nationals who seek employment in Malta.

The Key Employment Initiative (KEI)

 

The KEI is applicable to those who apply for a managerial or a highly-technical post which requires relevant qualifications or adequate experience related to the job being applied for.

Single permit applications based on the Key Employee Initiative are processed on a fast-track basis to ensure that third-country nationals applying for managerial or highly-technical posts with Maltese companies may commence their employment at the soonest possible time.

Eligibility for the KEI 

Individuals applying under the Key Employee Initiative must satisfy the following eligibility conditions:

  • Annual gross salary of at least €30,000 per annum;
  • Proof of the relevant qualifications, warrants or the necessary work experience; and
  • Declaration by the employer stating that the applicant has the necessary credentials to perform the duties being assigned

Application Procedure for Single Permit Application

 

Applicants interested in the Key Employee Initiative can submit their application in Malta or whilst abroad. 

Once the application is approved, the applicant will be issued with a permit valid for a period of one year. This permit may be renewed for a maximum period of three years.

Single permit applications based on the Key Employee Initiative are processed on a fast-track basis to ensure that third-country nationals applying for managerial or highly-technical posts with Maltese companies may commence their employment at the soonest possible time.
