Dear @Hassoni

Thank you for reaching out to the community and for sharing your situation with us! 

I found this thread on our platform with a similar question that has already been answered:

The answer is - Yes, you can apply for asylum. It looks like the country who issues you the visa would also be responsible for your asylum case (Malta). 

Please let me know if you have any more questions. 

All the best,

Isa

So it will not be possible for me to apply for asylum in any other EU country since my visa is from Malta.
Dear @Hassoni, What the thread and my sources are saying is that it is possible that - if you applied for asylum in a different EU-country but Malta issued you the visa- they will decline your application, as they don't feel responsible for your case. Dublin III applies then.
