Residency in Malta via any investment route provides secure permanent residence, enabling investors to live in Malta indefinitely.
As a Schengen Area Agreement participant, residents in this prime EU destination have eligibility to travel without a visa across Europe, without requiring any permission to travel.
Residence rights are available through two investment routes. Option one requires a governmental contribution of €68,000 with a property purchase from €300,000 in South Malta or Gozo or €350,000 in popular coastal resorts.
The second Maltese residency option requires a €98,000 donation, plus property rental of €10,000 in South Malta and Gozo, or €12,000 in the rest of the country.
Both residency options carry a minimum five-year investment or rental term, with some of the lowest threshold contribution or investment rates for international immigration in the EU.
Residency applications take around 12 months, but permits are issued within 60 days of approval. Residents can renew permits indefinitely every five years.
