Your Normal Home is where you usually live - that means where you spend 185 days or more in a period of 12 months because of your work and personal connections. But if you have no work connections or your work and personal connections are in different countries, then you usually live where your personal connections are.
However if you are a Maltese citizen and you are working outside the EU, your normal home can be where you are working so long as you have lived there for 185 days or more in a period of 12 months.
As an example, if you are a Maltese citizen returning with your family after working in the USA for 5 years, your normal home is the USA.
