Can anyone help, as the HR team at my work still don't know the answer to this. I've been here over 4 weeks and still haven't been to register for residency, which is stopping us from buying a car and setting up a bank account.
Basically when my employer found out I have a disability, they told me not to register using the normal EID residency process, as I might have a different process to follow where I could register for the Special ID card at the same time/instead. They seem to be unsure whether both are required (although it looks to me that they are separate applications according to online, but who knows).
I've been waiting to get going with whatever application is needed for weeks now, and all they can say is that they are waiting for the ETC to get back to them.
Has anyone been through this process before so could tell me what I need to do? I.e. do you think I should go to Valletta, get my EID card application in, then separately apply for Special ID?
Or, any suggestions for a number to phone and I'll ask the question myself? Preferably a number that someone has called and had a helpful experience!
I don't really understand what the hold up is, surely I'm not the first disabled EU immigrant to enter the Maltese workforce?! 😢
