: After arrival in Malta, during your AUM Orientation, our Student Affairs Office, will outline the steps for applying for your TRC.
↓ TRC Checklist of documents
Step 2 : Within the first few weeks of your studies, our AUM Student Affairs team will assist you with filling out the application and gathering the proper documents, including your AUM on campus housing documents (must be signed by the owner of the apartment).
Please note: You should allow for 3-4 weeks for preparation of documents and submission. AUM has to coordinate housing forms with the apartment owners and this often takes time. Please be patient.
Step 3 : Our AUM Student Affairs Staff will then take you personally to the ID Malta Office to submit your application (usually we take a group every Thursday). Upon submission of the TRC application, you will receive a “Blue Paper” which allows you to stay legally on the territory of Malta, even if your visa expires. The Blue Paper is valid for 4 months and within that time you should receive a letter in the mail telling you to pick up your card.
