Valetta, Malta: On Thursday February 24th at 11 a.m. EST/5 p.m. CET, Island Innovation will be hosting the virtual event “How You Can Live and Work Remotely in the Mediterranean Island Nation of Malta”. This is the perfect opportunity for anyone who wants to find out how they can relocate to Malta and work remotely, as well as why Malta is such a desirable place to live! 

The objective of this webinar is to provide information about Malta’s Nomad Residence Permit, including all the application eligibility requirements and where to apply. A range of details will also be included in relation to what makes Malta one of the top-rated destinations in the world for digital nomads to live and work. 

Malta has been attracting young digital expats for years now, ever since the Island became a hub for gaming companies. Since then, Malta has become a multi-cultural, cosmopolitan country that has adapted to the change of global mobility.  

Pubs and bars now heave with hip expats and locals, meeting up for after-work drinks in the early evening. Even traditional workplaces have adopted a new corporate culture that includes fun and games, while work hubs and co-working spaces with hot desks have become the remote workers and freelancers’ go-to for networking, meetings, and community life.
