Malta Residency and Visa Programme

The Residency by Investment Programme provides a noteworthy opportunity to affluent individuals and families of reputable standing to reside, settle and stay indefinitely in Malta (EU). It offers a fast track permanent residence whereby investors may enjoy visa-free travel within the Schengen Zone, with no requirement to apply for a visa prior travelling. The spouse may also be added to the application along with other registered dependents including children, parents and grandparents of both the main applicant and the spouse as long as one can evidence that they are not economically active and are financially dependent on the main applicant. 


Investment Value

Investments under the Malta Residency and Visa Programme fall under three categories:-  property purchase or rental, monetary contribution, investment in qualifying investment. Investors may choose to purchase property for a minimum value of €270,000 or alternatively rent for at least €10,000 on a yearly basis, for a minimum period of five years. A total contribution of €30,000 is to be given to the Maltese authorities. Furthermore, one must invest at least €250,000 in approved stocks, bonds, shares and/or debentures as approved by the Malta Residency and Visa Agency for a minimum period of five years. It is also mandatory to indefinitely hold global health insurance for every family member for a minimum coverage of €30,000. Whilst additional contributions may apply for every parent or grandparent included in the application, the majority of investments are to be settled once in principle approval of application is issued by the local authorities.
