Hey bpqlaaygllzoe - how are you liking it so far? Internet good? Easy to get around? I've read eCabs is a great way to get around, have you found that to be the case? I'll be arriving in 2 weeks+1 day.. I'm staying at an AirBnB in Gozo.. very close to the Munxar Parish Church (if you know the area)
I left already :D Malta wasnโ€™t really my thing, very interesting if into history, besides that I think itโ€™s mostly for partying or resort vibes, unless you like the small mediterranean crowded messy city vibes :D So good for short stays in my opinion. Internet was good where I stayed, to get around I just used Bolt, itโ€™s similar to Uber, more known from eastern europe.
qppcimcjwrlwk oh no, Iโ€™m not into that vibe at all. Iโ€™m staying in Gozoโ€ฆ hopefully away from it all. Iโ€™m hoping to go hiking a few hours every morning before starting work. Iโ€™ll be there for six weeks, then have a place lined up in Batumi, Georgia for six weeksโ€ฆ then gdansk, Poland for six weeks, then Kosovo for six weeksโ€ฆ I donโ€™t have plans yet after that.. trying to keep 6 months running reservationsโ€ฆ have you been to any of those places Any words of advice?
cool, have only been to Poland a long time ago but Krakow and Warzaw and then in the middle of nowhere out east close to belarus. Poland is cool -> cheap prices compared to western europe (no euro), good food and friendly people. Always be street smart though but Iโ€™d say that goes for anywhere on the planet.

Didn't get to Gozo, think it would be too quiet for me :D

lfkanenrpttulwc Welcome! I stay on the small island, Gozoโ€ฆ much quieter great for hiking.. and go to The big island on the weekends. I hope everything is working out for you! Let me know if you need anythingโ€” Iโ€™m not a pro, just being a friendly nomad-neighbor. Iโ€™m here through June 3rd.
Thanks! Yes I really like it here. Itโ€™s not too touristy from what I experienced in Gzira compared to Cyprus or Cancun ๐Ÿ˜…

From what I've heard it's harder in practice than on paper. The burocracy apparently is terrible and the whole thing takes lot longer than it should
Do you have 0.5mln to spare? Then it's possible it's fairly easy.
If you're thinking residence route, forget about it. First hand reports are that you need absolute minimum 15 years, and more often only successful once you've been here for 18-20 years. The "5 years" you may have read about is only for people with Maltese spouse or Maltese roots (grand/grand-grand parents etc)
Hey guys,
has anyone applied for the Malta nomad visa recently? (ref nomad.residencymalta.gov.mt/)br />any suggestions on where to start/which agency to contact?
Hi yrcgmzrxmtu I did recently and today got the approval in principle letter
The process is very straightforward. They keep an updated guideline and step by step manual on the website. Best to follow it. I almost got into trouble using an old one I downloaded last year October. They had revised the process and forms twice between then and the March I eventually started my application process.
And for those already in Malta. I'm looking to rent a very cheap place for a year. Any help on where to get cheaper than AirBnB deals? I won't be able to inspect physically as I don't have a visa to come over to Malta. Also, what are cancellation policies like in case I don't like the place and decide to rent somewhere else?

Will appreciate any help/pointers ๐Ÿ™
Hello,

Can you recommend any good places for a cup of espresso? Not "Italian" & not "Starbucks".

Looking for specialty coffee. โ˜•๏ธ

Hey. Any suggestion for a workspace in St Julian?
As an update, I got an Airbnb owner to do a 12 months rental contract for me for a shared apartment and paid upfront. I figured that will be cheaper than doing a studio or private room that I don't eventually like. If I don't like this I can decide to forgo the money paid and stay in a hotel or another apartment during my time in Malta without feeling too bad about the money I wasted.

I submitted the rent contract and a health insurance from Atlas Healthcare Malta on Thursday. Today (Saturday) I got the final approval letter from Residence Malta and will begin the process of coming over to Malta for my biometrics and residency card.
Hi all. Anyone know anything about Malta's premium visa service? I have searched online and checked on reddit with no luck. Making it look like a very new visa service or a secret one. But I know for sure that if I am not the first person Residency Malta is telling that the Digital Nomad Permit team will help me process a premium visa with Malta's Central Visa Unit of Identity Malta, so someone must know about it.

Background I am a Nigerian and blessed with one of the worst kind of passports to have, so I need a visa to enter Malta to complete my digital nomad permit (do biometrics and get the residency card). Since, the entire application up till approval was all done online, I got the feeling that the premium visa service is also an online process. I was asked to submit the scanned copy of all pages in my passport, then 7 weeks later (towards the time I got the approval email for the nomad permit) I was asked to submit a scanned copy of a specific empty page on my passport.

TLDR How does Malta's premium visa service work?
