New Malta Residence and Visa Programme announced

Image title

The Maltese authorities have launched a new Residence Scheme for Third Country nationals entitled Malta Residence and Visa Programme. Individuals who are not nationals of the EU, EEA (EU+ Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein) or Switzerland can qualify for a Malta Residence Permit which should entitle them to reside in Malta. Successful applicants are given resident certificates by Identity Malta – the national agency entrusted with managing residency permits in Malta.

This certificate entitles the beneficiary and his/her registered dependants to reside, settle or stay indefinitely in Malta, and more importantly, the Residence Card allows the holder to travel freely within the EU Schengen zone.

Identity Malta retains the right to monitor the beneficiary, for the first five years on an annual basis, and every five years thereafter.

Eligible applicants need to:

  • Pay a non-refundable €5,500 administration fee.
  • Make an initial contribution of €30,000 once the application is approved. The non-refundable administrative fee is deductible from the initial administration fee mentioned in point 1.
  • Own / rent a property in Malta for at least 5 years from the issuing of the certificate, with a minimum purchase value of €320,000 for a property in Malta or €270,000 for a property in the South of Malta* or Gozo, or minimum annual rental of €12,000 for a property situated in Malta or €10,000 for a property situated in the South of Malta* or Gozo.
  • Hold a qualifying investment for a minimum value of €250,000 for at least 5 years from the date of the issuing of the certificate. The criteria for eligibility as to what investments will qualify under this condition are still to be published by the authorities.
  • Have annual income of not less than €100,000 arising outside Malta or be in possession of capital of not less than €500,000.
  • Satisfy a number of due diligence procedures in order to be admitted as a beneficiary in terms of this Programme. These include Certificates of Conduct from the relevant police authorities, both local and overseas.

Applicants are to authorise a person who is an Identity Malta registered approved agent and, or registered accredited person to act on his/her behalf in respect of all applications, correspondence, submissions, filings, declarations and notifications contemplated under these regulations.
