The Malta Individual Investor Programme (IIP) provides for the issuance of citizenship of Malta through the grant of a certificate of naturalization to foreign individuals and their families, who contribute to the economic development of Malta. The firm is licensed, authorised and accredited by the Identity Malta Agency to submit applications in this regard.

The Malta Residence and Visa Programme (MRVP) offers its beneficiary and dependents the possibility of a universal Schengen Visa. This means that such residence permit together with a valid travel document (non-EU passport) allow an applicant and his dependents to travel freely across the Schengen Area without the need for a Visa. This Programme is applicable to third-country nationals who are not long-term residents of Malta who pass successful due diligence procedures and who satisfy certain required criteria.

The firm also offers assistance with other EU/Maltese residence programmes, such as:

  • Ordinary Residence
  • The Residence Programme
  • The Global Residence Programme
  • The Highly Qualified Persons Programme (HQP)
  • The Retirement Programme

The IIP programme applies to both Non-EU and EU citizens and entails the acquisition of citizenship of Malta through the grant of a certificate of naturalisation to persons, and their families, who contribute to the economic development of Malta. The main requirements are:

  • a minimum of 18 years of age;
  • that the applicants meet the application and contribution requirements.

The beneficiaries of the Global Residence Scheme may still avail of this programme as long as the additional requirements imposed thereby are satisfied. The main applicant must prove that they have been a resident of Malta for a period of at least 12 months, preceding the issuance of the certificate of naturalisation.

Similarly with the MRVP, non-EU nationals and their dependents may now reside, settle or stay indefinitely in Malta subject to the conditions of the programme. In addition, they will also benefit from the remittance basis of taxation, which offers considerable advantages. This residence scheme offers its beneficiary and dependents the possibility of a Universal Schengen Visa. This means that such residence permit together with a valid travel document (non-EU passport) would allow an applicant and his dependents to travel freely across the Schengen Area without the need for a Visa. Moreover only foreign source income which is received in Malta and income/capital gains sourced in Malta would be taxable. Foreign source income retained abroad and capital gains, even if received locally, will not be taxable in Malta.
