Malta is one of the most elite residency and citizenship-by-investment destinations.

Malta is a very attractive country, not only as a tourist location but also as a business and financial hub.

Due to its strong reputation and stable economy, Malta is an attractive financial destination for investors and families alike. 

Malta offers two residency programs and in addition a citizenship program. Malta's citizenship by investment program, known as the Individual Investor Program (IIP) is one of the most attractive programs of its kind.

The three programs have been outlined below:

The Global Residence Program (GRP) offers access to EU residence to prospective investors and is attractive to investors looking to reside in Malta. The residence program allows investors to obtain Maltese residence through an investment in real estate. 

In 2016, Malta launched its new Residence and Visa Program, an attractive residency program for international investors.


The Maltese Residence and Visa Program is attractive to investors who are looking for an alternative to the Portuguese Golden Visa and offers Maltese residency in exchange in for an economic contribution into the country.


It is different to Global Residence Program and offers an attractive route to residence for investors and their families who are not necessarily looking to physically reside in Malta but are wanting the freedom and access that an EU residency offers. The program is relatively straight forward and requires a combination of real estate and Government bond investments.
