A comprehensive relocation alternative to individuals and businesses in Malta

For those looking to relocate to Malta without having to invest in a Malta Golden Visa or in Citizenship by Investment, there are other options available, like getting ordinary residence status on the island.

In fact, it has been stated that a person is ordinarily resident in a country by taking into account the duration of the individual’s presence in the country, frequency, regularity and nature of visits to the country, as well as business and family ties.

In Malta, both EU and non-EU nationals can move and relocate, but different rules apply.

Also, Maltese Citizenship can be gained by Naturalisation as a Maltese Citizen but a certain procedure must be followed.
