Who is required to submit biometrics under the Maltese Residency and Visa Program?

I heard that I would need to travel to Malta to submit biometrics in order to proceed with the application. Does the requirement apply to everyone? What about babies, toddlers or the disabled who have a difficult time traveling? Are there any exceptions or other locations to do biometrics, such as the Malta consulate in the applicant's home country?

    The CEA Form ID2 can be utilized in the case of babies and toddlers, which would mean that they would not need to travel to Malta. In the instance whereby the person suffers from disability or is not in a physically good condition to travel, this form will need to be backed up by a declaration from a medical practitioner confirming the physical state of the applicant. MRVA are very flexible when it comes to setting up appointments with the client, and any other reasons other than the ones mentioned above would, typically, not be accepted. They will be willing to work around the client’s schedule for the biometrics appointment. The only instance whereby biometrics can be taken outside of Malta is for Chinese clients, and only in very special cases at the discretion of the authority.

    With regards to the biometrics, all applicants need to do these. However, when it comes to babies and toddlers, only a picture is taken.
