International Relations

The International Relations Unit​ acts as the point of reference for all EU and international affairs related issues. The unit facilitates the coordination of social security regulations in the European Union and the European Economic Area, bilateral conventions Malta has with other contracting states, and other conventions it may have with any other future contracting states in a courteous and timely manner by maintaining efficient networking with the relevant social security institutions, while maintaining our commitment towards our customers.  


Reciprocal Agreements are formal treaties that help co-ordinate the social security systems of the respective contracting countries. The primary aim is to help people move from one country to another, obtaining benefits due and also in some cases regulating the payment of social security contributions.
