Work Permit Refusal: A Positive Decision

Work Permit appeal

Sciberras Advocates has recently won an appeal on behalf of a client. Our client had been residing and working legally in Malta for many years. In 2021 he submitted a change of employer as he wanted to change jobs, however he was late with the submission. It was submitted beyond the 10-day grace period which Identity Malta Agency give to Third Country Nationals. Following the work permit refusal, the client reached out to Sciberras Advocates for assistance.

As immigration lawyers in Malta, after assessing the case with the clients, we filed an appeal using different legal arguments on how and why our client should be granted another opportunity and allowed to regularise his positions in Malta. At the sitting, following the evidence and documents produced, timeline of events and the Court of Appeals considerations, the Immigration Appeals Boards accepted the appeal and allowed our client to apply for a new work permit to continue living here in Malta with his family.

The IAB ordered Identity Malta Agency to process the appellant’s application within three weeks from the date of judgement. The Board also requested that once appellant’s single work permit is issued, appellant is to notify the Principal Immigration Officer with an authenticated copy of the residence permit.

This is another success story for our client and Sciberras Advocates. If you are in a similar situation, we can help you… Regardless of the nature of your case, contact us to assess your situation.
