I'm an Indian national and I got a job offer in Malta. My future employer has applied for a residence permit on my behalf. About a month ago, they told me that my residence permit application has been approved and attached a letter from Identity Malta saying that my request for residence permit has been 'acceded to' and that I may proceed to Malta to take up the employment there.
The HR from my future employer thinks that I can travel to Malta now that my residence permit is approved. But I'm a little doubtful about that. From what I read online, the residence permit is a plastic card or something which I don't have with me yet and what I have is the email copy of an acceptance letter. The acceptance letter even says that I need a visa to travel in paragraph 3:
In this regard you are requested to present this letter to the pertinent Maltese consulate or the foreign consulate representing Malta in matters regarding the issue of a visa in order that facilitation may be given to you to be issued with a visa. The latter will enable you to travel to Malta.
I'm attaching a redacted copy of the acceptance letter. Can someone please let me know if I can travel with just this document or if I need something else. Thanks.
