The Maltese government launched a new specialist employee initiative program to attract and retain highly specialized non-EU nationals.
Additional Information: The SEI program is an alternative route for highly skilled third-country nationals who may not be eligible for the key employee initiative. KEI is a separate program that issues work and residence permits to highly technical or managerial non-EU applicants. SEI applications are submitted under the single permit government regulations for skilled workers who hold relevant academic, vocational or technical skills in line with their employment offer.
BAL Analysis: The SEI program provides employers access to greater skilled foreign talent and addresses skill shortages in key sectors such as IT, healthcare and engineering. The government intends to boost the economy by attracting skilled foreign professionals and offering another pathway for work and residence benefits.
