About Malta

Malta has been a republic since 1973, when it declared independence from the United Kingdom. Malta is a member of the European Union, the Council of Europe, and the Schengen Area of Europe.
Over the last fifteen years, it has transformed into a modern financial powerhouse, and it is now one of the most important jurisdictions in the southern European region.
Malta's workforce is well-educated, English-speaking, and highly motivated. Malta offers tax breaks to international people and firms who set up business in the country.

Maltese Citizenship by Investment

Malta offers investors who invest for five years a golden visa (permanent residency). After five years, investors will receive a complete refund of their investment. It is Europe's cheapest golden visa scheme. Malta's Residency Program (MPRP) was officially inaugurated in 2021 by the Maltese government. By April 2021, this less expensive version of the program will be accepting applications.
MPRP is a Residency by Investment Program that allows recipients to stay or settle in Malta or its sister island, Gozo, indefinitely. All MPRP applicants will be permitted to live, work, study, and settle for an indefinite period of time.
