Long term residents are defined by Subsidiary Legislation 217.05 as third country nationals who are granted long term resident status as provided for under regulations 4 to 7 of the said rules. In 2021, following infringement procedures by the European Commission against Malta, the rules have been amended so that those individuals holding long-term residence status in Malta are no longer required to hold an employment license to be able to work in Malta and will therefore enjoy equal treatment as Maltese nationals when it comes to access to employment, conditions of employment, tax benefits, social security and other social benefits, education and study grants amongst others.
