Relocating to Malta: Language

09 Aug 2017 Latest News Written by: Cutajar, David

Week 2: Language

Continuing from last week, here are a few more tips for employees relocating to Malta. This time, we will be talking about the use of language.

Malta is a bilingual country. Maltese and English are the official languages, with Maltese being the national language. Italian is also commonly spoken in Malta. According to the Eurobarometer series of public opinion surveys, 100 % of the population speaks Maltese whilst 88 % of the population speak or understand English, 66 % speak Italian, and 17 % speak French. This is good news for Italian and English speakers as it will ease integration on the island. It is also important to note that when overseas candidates are seeking a job in Malta, proficiency in written and spoken English is usually a must. 

It should also be pointed out that the majority of Maltese prefer to express themselves in their native Maltese Language, however, English is the main Business language. Malta's growing Financial Services sector attracts many overseas companies and these mainly communicate using English. Employees, both native and foreign, are thus required to speak English. 

 

Setting up a work permit/visa

Malta is a member of the European Union and Eurozone. It is essential to check Visa and work requirements before coming here. The following link will provide useful information on this matter: https://www.gov.mt/en/Life%20Events/Moving-to-Malta/Pages/Moving-to-Malta.aspx
