Why Malta?

Why Malta?

Malta packs unbelievable variety into its small archipelago. From ancient temples, fossil-decorated cliffs, secret coves, to world-class scuba diving, the country is blessed with natural wonders and remarkable history.

Maltese residents enjoy a high quality of life, an excellent healthcare system, low crime rates, outstanding schooling opportunities, and a culture that supports sustainability and personal wellbeing. This makes Malta all the more appealing for non-European nationals looking to truly widen their horizons. While investors may be on the search for Malta Golden Visas, the Maltese government currently runs two investment programs for individuals looking to settle down in Malta and call this gorgeous nation home — the Malta Permanent Residence Program (MPRP) and the Maltese Citizenship By Naturalization Program.

Malta Permanent Residence Program

For non-European nationals who’ve always dreamt of living in a safe and stable country, the Malta Permanent Residence Program offers just that—a direct route to permanent residence.

Qualified and vetted applicants must invest a minimum of €120,000 to be considered for the program. Investments are made through a combination of a property investment, government contribution, and charitable donation. Along with acquiring the right to settle and reside in Malta permanently, the MPRP — although often misnamed as the Malta Golden Visa — enables investors to tap into Malta’s dynamic property market, as well as extend residency onto family members.

Maltese Citizenship By Investment Program

Officially called the Granting of Citizenship for Exceptional Services Regulations (CES), the program permits non-EU nationals to gain citizenship by naturalization. To qualify, you must contribute to the country’s economic development, pass strict due diligence processes, and invest a minimum of €600,000.

After becoming a Maltese citizen, applicants enjoy the right to live, work, and study in Malta while benefiting from the full set of rights as other EU citizens throughout the European Union.
