According to statistics, the average monthly income in Malta is around 4,620 EUR.

Job opportunities in Malta

Although Malta has a very low unemployment rate, the job market in Malta is experiencing a shortage of skilled workers for many important positions. In recent years, the demand for jobs in Malta has increased more than before, stemming from many reasons, such as increased FDI capital, attractive tax policies, tourism market, developed finance, etc. This makes the job market in Malta, which is already short of workers, even worse.

Malta has received a large number of citizens to immigrate, however, this number is still not enough to meet the current recruitment needs of businesses.
