  • If your Single Permit Application was refused, you have a right to appeal this decision with the Immigration Appeals Board within three days of the notification of such decision in accordance with Article 20(2) of Subsidiary Legislation 217.17.
  • If your Visa Application was refused, annulled or revoked by Maltese authorities, you have the right to appeal this decision with the Immigration Appeals Board within fifteen days of the notification of such decision as per Article 25A(5) of Chapter 217.
  • If you received a return order to go back to your country, you have the right to appeal this decision with the Immigration Appeals Board within three days of the notification of such decision. The right to appeal is also stated in Article 25A(5) of Chapter 217.

Keeping proper documentation is of utmost importance in the case of appeals, as one would need to show proof of various circumstances such as justification for intended stay, proof of job skills for Single Permit Applications, proof of work, accommodation, and medical insurance for Visa approvals and so on and so forth.
