Overstay and Identity Malta Agency: Another win

Immigration lawyer Malta

Sciberras Advocates and Belgravia Advisory have recently won an appeal on behalf of a Colombian who requested legal representation on a personal case. This case was against Identity Malta Agency (IMA). A Colombian national applied for a Single Permit as a still abroad in March 2022, indicating to IMA that he was not in Malta. Once processed, the approval in principle was issued in May 2022 with an appointment for biometrics set for June 2022. During the biometrics meeting, it was established that the applicant has entered and remained in Malta since January 2022 and therefore was overstay.

With Dr Adrian Sciberras from Sciberras Advocates, and Dr Karl Cordina, both representing the client, an appeal was filed with the Immigration Appeals Board (IAB). Together we filed various submissions to the case. Following evidence produced, the IAB accepted the appellant’s appeals and directed IMA to process and decide upon the work permit application without considering the Third Country National to have been illegally present.
