The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) would like to inform its licensees and new applicants regarding an update to the procedure for the collection of criminal conduct records (fedina penali) from the Malta Police Force, as instructed by the latter.

Applicants, who are required to submit the Maltese criminal conduct record with their Personal Declaration Application Form or the Employee Applications, are required to proceed to the Malta Police Criminal Records office in Floriana and apply for their criminal record. Please note that the Police will not hand over to the applicant the criminal record as this will be collected by the Authority after the applicant submits the application form to the Authority. It is important that a copy of the receipt of payment of the criminal record is attached to the application form submitted to the Authority to enable the collection of the aforementioned form, from the Malta Police Force.

This new procedure will come into effect as of 9 September, 2015 and remains applicable until further notice.

Should you have any queries in relation to the above, kindly contact Jeanette Abela on jeanette.k.abela@mga.org.mt or Rebekah Duca on rebekah.duca@mga.org.mt.
