Now the above office is only for people living in Sliema, St Julian’s, Tal’Ibragg, Swieqi or Pembroke.
However…. Nothing stays the same for ever.
It’s an online world we live in, and so these days the Maltese government want you to apply for a social security number online from this site.
For an EU resident without a Maltese ID card you will need to provide the following:
(1) An official identification (with photo)
(2) Copy of the ETC engagement form or ‘Promise of Employment’ letter or a similar document which shows that you will be carrying out an employed/self-occupied activity in Malta
and if you are from a non-EU country you also need to show that you are entitled to work in Malta by providing this:
(3) Copy of Employment licence
… or else proof that you are married to an EU citizen:
(4) Copy of letter from DCEA, showing proof that person can work or reside freely in Malta. (Freedom of Movement)
You should get your number within 3 working days – assuming all your details are acceptable – and there is no cost.
