Certificate of Citizenship

Can a certificate of Maltese Citizenship be issued to a citizen of Malta?

A certificate of Maltese Citizenship is issued on request of a foreign Government in order to prove one’s national status. A request from the country’s authority should be produced before the certificate can be issued. Should a certificate of Maltese Citizenship be required for other purposes, the applicant would need to prove justification.
