Immigration is a delicate process that often requires special attention due to the various legal implications it can bring along. Over the years our team of immigration lawyers has been actively involved in assisting EU and non-EU nationals in issues related to immigration matters with Identity Malta Agency, the Refugee Commissioner, Immigration Appeals Board, VFS offices, and other Malta entities related to immigration.
Apart from residency schemes, citizenships, long term residence permits, fiscal incentives to establish residency in Malta, HNWI schemes, Key Employee Initiative (KEI) applications, refugee and subsidiary protection, visa applications and more, at Sciberras Advocates immigration lawyers in Malta we can assist with any immigration law issues that may arise during the redomiciling process to obtain a residency permit or a renewal. Such issues revolve around visa overstays, refusal of entry for non-valid reasons, marriage fraud, documentation fraud, entering the country illegally and more.
