Processing times for Maltese citizenship by registration?

I submitted my application for Maltese citizenship by registration in February 2016 at the Identity Malta office in Valetta.  But, was wondering when should I expect to hear back?

I am of Maltese descent fourth generation born abroad, not married, and from a non-EU country.  From reading earlier posts, it seems processing times vary greatly, that non-EU applications take much longer, and those made through Embassies outside of Malta seem to take over a year.

If anyone went through the process and applied in Valetta, it would be great to know how long it took and what to expect.

Thanks,  Andrew

Hi Andrew

I applied for dual citizenship 12 months ago today in Valletta. All they tell me is "it's being processed".  I am an eu citizen and in light of the U.K. coming out of the eu shortly, maybe this is what has slowed my application down.  I would like to have this before I move to Malta. It is anyone's guess. The website states 2 years for complicated cases, which mine isn't.

Can anyone else help?
