For setting up a bank account in Maltathe are a few things that you need to do:
- Get yourself a Maltese ID card, which is an internal national identity card. You can get this by visiting the Electoral Office in Valletta and if you are an EU citizen it should take 2 weeks to get back to you.
- Next you will need a reference letter from the bank you are in now (before you move to work abroad) all you need the to say is what your current credit rating is and whether or not you are debt free.
Once you have those 2 sorted the rest is simple:
- Bring your passport
- Most recent ultility bill
- Proof of Maltese address
