Malta Citizenship by Investment Programme | The Malta Individual Investor Programme (IIP)


Albeit small in size, Malta is definitely not short of reasons why one would choose its programme to become a Global Citizen. An attractive location for foreign investors and strategically positioned in the heart of the Mediterranean whilst boasting the unique qualities of a distinctive island lifestyle, it is safe to state that Malta has the whole package.

The advantageous tax rates and investment programmes offered to foreign investors coupled with a pleasant Mediterranean climate and rich culture and history stand out on Malta’s proposition.

A yet small country but provided with a strong, booming economy and warm welcoming people, Malta is the island in the Mediterranean where the discerning eye can find a vast array of benefits for those looking for lifestyle, peaceful but yet vibrant way of life with European access – and most importantly, through a sound and a smart investment

The Malta Citizenship by Investment Programme allows individuals and family dependants to acquire citizenship by fulfilling 3 key investment elements, aside from the regular and stringent background checks:

    • A Property Investment: Either to purchase a property in Malta with a minimum value of€350,000 or to lease a property for a minimum annual rent of €16,000;

    • Government Bonds: Invest a minimum of €150,000, which must be placed with investment vehicles designated by the Government of Malta;

    • Government Contribution: With an amount that depends on the application structure, from €650,000 for the Main Applicant and additional amounts for spouse, children and parent dependants.

The qualifying investment must be held for 5 years, and the applicant must show strong links to the island.
