Residency By Investment In Malta
Residency By Investment In Malta

Malta is much more than a hotspot for tourism and travel. It offers residents and citizens an opportunity for business, passive income, and a high quality of life. This small island off the coast of Italy is in the Schengen region, has a stable economy, and is close to mainland Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.

Malta’s Golden Visa program, formally known as the Malta Permanent Residence program, offers investors a chance at residency in Malta. This gives investors an opportunity to reside and travel in the EU and in as little as a year become fully fledged citizens. 

Benefits of Malta Residency by Investment

The Malta Permanent Residence Program, commonly referred to as a Golden Visa, started in April of 2021 to attract high-quality foreign investors. With Maltese residency, investors can enjoy traveling in the Schengen Region and gain access to a booming real estate market. 

If you ever consider attaining Malta citizenship by investment, then you need residency for one to three years to qualify.

Acquiring Malta Residency 

Finding a Licensed Agent

The first step on your residency journey should be to work with a professional agency that will guide you every step of the way. From acquiring your Malta Golden Visa to securing citizenship by investment, Mirabello Consultancy is here to streamline the process.

Real Estate

In order to gain your Malta golden visa, you need to lease or purchase qualifying property:

  • Rent a property for a minimum of €10,000 in the South of Malta/Gozo or €12,000 in the rest of Malta
  • purchase a property for a minimum value of €300,000 in the South of Malta/Gozo or €350,000 in the rest of Malta

The same property must be held during the entire duration of the first five years of residency in order to be able to qualify for citizenship. 

Including Family

The Malta residency program allows investors to include family members as residents. Spouses, and children who are dependent are automatically included in the Malta residency process. Each dependent parent will cost a fee of €7,500 for their application.

Philanthropic Donation

After securing your property, a donation of €2,000 must be made to an NGO registered with the Commissioner of Voluntary Organisations. Making this donation to a local organization shows your commitment to residing in Malta. 

Travel Insurance

Applicants and their families must have a healthcare insurance policy when traveling in the country as well as one for the Schengen Area. This residency requirement ensures that your bases are covered in case of a medical emergency.
