Malta Residence & Visa Program (Malta residency by investment program)

The residency scheme allows the successful applicants to obtain the resident status through an accelerated process and at the same time with the members of the family. Interestingly, the physical residency limits are not limited. It means that you can maintain your residency practically without living in Malta. Another benefit is that the government guarantees the return of the entire amount invested after five years and the national bondS’ rating is “A”. Moreover, perhaps the most crucial issue: the ability to finance investments.

How much should I invest in the Maltese residency?

1. Applicants must invest 250,000 euros in Maltese government bonds for five years.
2. Contribution to the State Fund: 30,000 euros.
3. Applicants must also purchase or rent residential real estate in Malta.
