How It Works
What we need …
A detailed Curriculum Vitae in English language, including a passport-size photo, age, field of study, year of study, and jobs and tasks from previous internship experiences or jobs, if any;
Motivation letter in English Language;
A copy of a valid National ID card (for EU citizens only) or Passport and Travel Visa (for Non-EU citizens);
Declaration or Learning Agreement from the Sending Organisation;
Duly filled Registration Form (provided by Zeal Internships Malta);
Dates of the internship, including travel dates;
Some host companies in certain sectors such as health services, elderly care, or internships with children would require additional documentation such as a recent Police Conduct in English language, Immunization records, Insurance coverage policy, etc.
Working in Malta …
The minimum legal working age in Malta is of 16 years.
Working hours in Malta are of 40 hours plus lunch break per week over 5 days, and two rest days off work.
Business in Malta is generally conducted in the two official languages of the Island being Maltese and English, therefore a good level of English language (minimum B1 level) is required. The Participant will benefit from working in an English-speaking environment, as this gives the opportunity to practice and improve the level of English.
Before Arriving ...
The Participant must be in possession of a valid travel and medical insurance cover before travelling. The insurance cover should include, but not limited to medical expenses, medical assistance, personal property / business equipment, personal injury protection and personal liability.
The Participant is to also ensure that they are in possession of the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). Persons issued with a European Health Insurance Card will be eligible to free or reduced-cost emergency medical treatment during temporary visits in EEA countries and Switzerland. The purpose of the EHIC is to facilitate access to medical care during the holder’s temporary stay in an EU Member State, and to speed up reimbursement of the costs incurred. Applying for an EHIC is free. A separate application form is needed for each person with the exception of children under 16.
The European Health Insurance Card:
is not an alternative to a travel insurance. It does not cover any private healthcare or costs such as a return flight to your home country or lost/stolen property;
does not cover costs if travelling for the express purpose of obtaining medical treatment;
does not guarantee free services. As each country’s healthcare system is different services that cost nothing at home might not be free in another country.
Non-EU citizens would require an entry visa to Malta. For information about entry visa applications please visit the website of the Maltese Ministry for Home Affairs And National Security.
Mobile Communication: The main mobile telecommunication service providers in Malta are EPIC, GO Telecommunications and Melita. Ensure that your mobile phone line is open to international roaming enabling you to make phone calls and message whilst in Malta. Local top-up sim cards can be purchased from the Service Provider’s Booth at the airport upon arrival. Various shops in most towns would also sell these sim cards and top-up cards.
