New members of the Malta forum, introduce yourselves here - 2019

Many schools in Mellieha/St Pauls etc are predominantly english if the posts here are to be believed.  Also numerous private schools to pick from for all english options.

Hi volcane.. ahh, another one of “us”  :)  - thanks for your reply. Yes, we are going by the same assumption and if public schools don’t turn out to be the thing for our kids, a private school looks like a good option too, and way, way, way more affordable than here in Thailand from what I can gather. For me, football has been the way to escape cabin fever.

Football is popular on Gozo every village has teams for adults and children, if your children speak English they should be alright with regards schooling.

Hi All,

I'm Katrine, 24, from the Philippines, and hoping to relocate to Malta soon.

I'm a Certified Public Accountant by profession.  I like running and hiking but currently on hiatus.

Last year, I got an offer to work as a Senior Auditor in an audit firm, however, until now, I'm currently waiting for the release of my work permit (the firm's HR is continuously chasing for it yet they didn't receive any updates from Identity Malta). 

Been reading the topic here regarding the work permit process, and from the discussions therein, it looks like I still be needing a lot more patience in waiting though the waiting time is already making me anxious.


Kind Regards,

K

Hello everyone!

My name is Antonio, I'm Italian but currently based in Aberdeen, Scotland. After my graduation in June, I'm planning to move to Malta with my partner. I'll hopefully get the chance to do my Masters in the island's university.

We are looking for all the information to be more prepared for the big move, and this forum seems just right.

We can't wait to start our new life in Malta!

Malta is just like Italy, but a bit smaller in size. Without the karabineri Life is even easier in Malta.

Hello everyone,

I am new to the forum, just signed up today   :)

I currently live in London but I am thinking about moving me and my son out to Malta or Gozo. I think it would be a good idea to first experience living there for a few months before a definite move...I am just anxious because my son is 11 years old and about to start secondary school. I am worried that he will have a hard time settling into a new school/new culture! After all it is a massive step!

The other option is to wait until he finishes school so not to cause too much of a disruption to his education...

If anyone has experienced moving children out there, I would appreciate some advice!

Thank you

Welcome to the Forum, if you search schooling you may find the answers you need, good luck.
Have you visited Malta before?

Ok thank you, yes I visited last August and I am returning this October :)

Also children want to know why their parents are moving from one country to another. If your child likes Malta and Gozo and is aware of the fact that learning the Maltese language is important I would give it a go. Like parents children do not want to be displaced, they want to be part of the society they live in. A child who appreciates a new invironment without missing the previous invironment too much will settle down in Malta easily. An advantage is being a roman catholic in this society. Overall I would say talk to your child about it and come to a decision. For children and for adults alike there is a golden rule:"In Rome do as the Romans do" This is also the way to succeed in little Malta, which is not very far away from Rome.

Hi all,

My name's Jesse. I'm a 29 year old traveller from Adelaide, Australia.

Relatively new to Malta, living in Valletta for the next month before walking the Camino De Santiago. Might apply for residency and stay on afterwards, haven't decided yet.

Would like to meet up with people for walking, talking, coffee or a meal etc. Guys or girls, doesn't bother me. Not looking for anything romantic just some company.

Send me a message if you're free and let's hang out!

Thanks, Jesse

Hi all,

My name is Chris,

I moved to Malta last year in September but didn't realise this website was here.

I accepted a new job in Malta and relocated on a permanent basis. No plans on returning to England. Before i moved to Malta I actually frequented the island quite a lot growing up so have been coming to Malta for 13 years before the final move.

Open to meeting like minded people, I'm pretty social so feel free to say Hi.
