Malta Residency by Investment

There’s some uncertainty where the name ‘Malta’ comes from. Some believe it’s from the ancient Greeks who called the island Μελίτη (Melitē) or “honey-sweet” because of its historic honey production. While others attribute the origin of the name to the Phoenician word Maleth meaning “a haven” in reference to Malta’s many bays and coves. Either way, both words are fitting for this sweet Mediterranean paradise. Historically, Malta was a naval stronghold due to its strategic positioning. Today, Malta is a hot-spot for tourism and enjoys a stable and advanced economy.

Malta Residence and Visa Programme
The Malta Residence and Visa Programme has been developed to attract reputable non-EU nationals and their dependants to reside and settle in Malta, also affording them the right to ‘Visa – free’ travel within the Schengen area. Upon acceptance by the Authority, an applicant is issued a Certificate of Residence and a corresponding Maltese residence permit which shall be valid for 5 years, which, insofar as the ongoing obligations are continually satisfied, will be renewable indefinitely.


Malta’s Individual Investor Programme (MIIP)
The Maltese Individual Investor Programme (MIIP) enables any individual and their family to qualify for Maltese citizenship, by contributing to the economic development of Malta. It is the first citizenship programme in the EU to have been recognised and officially approved by the European Commission. Qualifying applicants will be recognized and granted the same rights as any Maltese citizen, including, the freedom to move, work, live, and vote within Malta and also the EU. An ‘Approved Agent’ must be engaged and will be responsible for the processing of the application, representing the applicant throughout the MIIP process.
