Citizenship by Investment

Unlock Your World with Malta's Citizenship by Investment
Imagine a life where you're not just a citizen of a country but a global citizen, and Malta, nestled in the heart of the Mediterranean, offers you just that. The Maltese Islands invite you to experience a blend of cultures, rich history, and breathtaking sights.
In 2020, Malta introduced the 'Maltese Citizenship by Exceptional Services' program, a unique opportunity under the Maltese Citizenship Act. This program welcomes individuals with a stellar reputation and financial standing, granting citizenship based on their contributions and investments in Malta. Say goodbye to the previous Malta Individual Investor Program; the current MEIN (Malta Citizenship by Naturalisation for Exceptional Services through Direct Investment) took its place in November 2020.

Why Choose Maltese Citizenship?

Here's the layman's scoop on why having Maltese citizenship is so sought after:

  • Jet-Set Lifestyle: Gain visa-free access to 182 countries, including popular destinations like the Schengen area, Canada, the US, Hong Kong, and Singapore.
  • Tax Perks: Thanks to Malta's double tax treaty, you might catch a break on taxes in your home country.
  • Economic Opportunities: Dive into a fully developed open market economy.
  • Global Nomad Status: Malta recognizes and embraces dual citizenship, allowing you to travel, work, and settle in any of the 27 EU member states, plus Norway, Liechtenstein, Iceland, and Switzerland.
  • Wellness and Education: Enjoy access to Malta's top-notch healthcare and education systems.
